Scratch Developed by the Lifelong Kindergarten with the MIT's Media Lab research group, Scratch is a new programming language that facilitates the creation of interactive, cartoons, games, musical compositions of stories, simulations and their shares on the Web. Scratch is a free software designed to introduce students from the age of 8, to fundamental concepts in mathematics and computer science. It is based on a fun of algorithmic approach, to help them to create, to reason and to cooperate. It also promotes the sharing on the Web. From 2007, the website was opened to allow everyone on the one hand to publish, so sharing its projects on the Web, and on the other hand to provide assistance to the implementation of Scratch.

42 Fill-in-the-Blank Prompts For Students To Design Their Own Projects 42 Fill-in-the-Blank Prompts For Students To Design Their Own Projects by Terry Heick So often, we make learning more complicated than it has to be. Local planning requirements are usually at fault here–plan this way and prove that you’ve done so here and here, fill out this and this, etc. Those legitimate concerns aside, the following series of fill-in-the-blank prompts can be used by teachers to create lessons, students to create projects–or teachers to collaborate with students to create lessons–or projects.
5 Ways of Bringing Student Passions to Student Learning Exciting classes interest students. These classes spark their curiosity. Sometimes, the learning here feels like play. A school may not be able to use these exciting ideas everywhere, but they should be used somewhere. If a school can't be interested in things that students care about, students will lose interest in caring about school. Genius Hour Trailers At ISTE last week, Jane McGonigal showed a fascinating trailer that had been designed for a project she was doing with the New York Public Library. You can see it here. I was intrigued by the concept, and thought it would be a great way to introduce Genius Hour to my students this coming school year. I found an excellent Genius Hour trailer online that had been created by Ryan O’Shea, but I wanted to make one that was a bit more generic so anyone could use it. Plus, I wanted to play around with iMovie. So, with a little help from my daughter, who shares billing with me, here is what is probably the first draft of my version of a Genius Hour Trailer.

Linus Torvalds's fabled "world domination" on the desktops of clerks or CEOs may never arrive, but it's already here on the computers of programmers everywhere. Even in the deepest corners of proprietary stacks, open source tools can be found, often dominating. The reason is clear: Open source licenses are designed to allow users to revise, fix, and extend their code. 23 Videos That Sparked Genius Hour Thinking, Collaboration, and Actions In our classroom this year my colleague Gallit Zvi and I used many youtube videos to inspire resiliency, grit, and hope in our students prior to guiding them in formulating their inquiry questions about their passions and wonders during our weekly Genius Hour time. Many of the videos were shared with me through wonderful connections I made with educator learners on Twitter, Facebook, and at various workshops. I love my PLN! However I am proud to say students and teachers in our room inspired each other too. Some of our work is shared on this list too.
