José Ignacio Huertas Fernández El proyecto comenzó hace unos años cuando nos encontramos con la herramienta Scratch gracias a la Campaña por la alfabetización digital promovida en el Reino Unido. En ese momento, con un poco de escepticismo, nos planteamos si podría introducirse esta herramienta en las clases de Informática Aplicada (4º de ESO). Después de mucho trastear, jugar e investigar, consideramos que podría ser una buena idea y comenzamos con el desarrollo de este proyecto. Para ser sinceros, en ese momento aún no éramos conscientes del cambio que esta iniciativa iba a producir en nuestras aulas. La idea inicial fue trabajar con la herramienta Scratch en nuestras aulas para que alumnado aprendiera a programar a través del desarrollo de videojuegos, aunque posteriormente se han ido añadiendo más herramientas de la familia, como App Inventor, Snap o Scratch Junior, que permiten adaptar este trabajo a otros niveles y disciplinas.
