Scratch Lessons Scratch is developed by the Lifelong Kindergarten group at the MIT Media Lab. Here is how Scratch website describe Scratch. "Scratch is a new programming language that makes it easy to create your own interactive stories, animations, games, music, and art -- and share your creations on the web." I started to use Scratch about one and half year ago and am amazed at how well it's designed. מדריך הפקודות של תוכנת סקראץ מבוא | הממשק של סקראץ | אבני בניין של סקראץ | תיאור אבני בניין | נספחים 1. מבוא סקראץ היא שפת תכנות חדשה המאפשרת יצירה של סיפורים אינטראקטביים, משחקים ואנימציות בצורה קלה ופשוטה. בנוסף מאפשרת סקראץ לחלוק את היצירות שלך עם משתמשים אחרים באינטרנט. מדריך פקודות זה מפרט על תוכנת סקראץ. אתר סקראץ מציע עוד אמצעים ללמידת התוכנה כגון: סרטי הדרכה, כרטיסיות סקראץ ושאלות נפוצות. מדריך זה עבור סקראץ 1.4 יצא ביומי 2009. סקראץ מפותחת במעבדת המדיה של אמ.אי.טי על ידי קבוצת ה- "lifelong kindergarten Group" ובעזרה הכספית של הקרן הלאומית למדע, מיקרוסופט, קרן אינטל, נוקיה והקונסורטיום המחקרי של מעבדת המדיה באמ.אי.טי. מרכיבים בסיסיים ביצירה מסוג סקראץ יצירות סקראץ מורכבות מאוביקטים (עצמים) המכונים דמויות. לדמויות נותנים הוראות, לזוז, לנגן מוסיקה או להגיב לדמויות אחרות. 2. במה הבמה זהו המקום בו דמויות מגיבות לדמויות אחרות וכך מתעוררים לחיים הסיפורים, המשחקים והאנימציות שאתם יוצרים. על מנת למצוא את נקודת האמצע של הבמה, הזז את העכבר על גבי הבמה והתבונן בערכים המופיעים בתחתית הבמה. .

Scratch in Pre-algebra Class I have been using Scratch for a couple years in an elementary school in St. Paul. For math, I teach 7th grade pre-algebra to a gifted/talented class of 6th graders. I posted my beginning list of integration ideas on the resources tab. Scratch 1.4 Reference Guide Introduction | Scratch Interface | Scratch Blocks | Block Descriptions | Appendix Scratch is a new programming language that makes it easy to create interactive stories, games, and animations and share your creations with others on the web. This Reference Guide provides an overview of the Scratch software. If you are just getting started with Scratch, we encourage you to try the Getting Started Guide first (available from the Support section on the Scratch website). Then, if you want more detailed information, come back to the Reference Guide. The Scratch website has many other resources to help you learn Scratch: Video tutorials, Scratch cards, and Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs). This guide is for Scratch version 1.4, released July 2009. Scratch is developed by the Lifelong Kindergarten Group at the MIT Media Lab, with financial support from the National Science Foundation, Microsoft, Intel Foundation, Nokia, and the MIT Media Lab research consortia.

Scratch: Making a simple game. « Digital Art For All This is done as a multiple step process and will be done over several classes. A five lesson plan is shown below. Each student will create their own version of this game with their own character and background, and their own rules for movement/food/enemy. Lesson 1. 1. Click on stage and Backgrounds tab and either import one of the Scratch backgrounds provided or paint your own. Delete the cat (use scissors) on the top and either create your own character or import one of the Scratch characters or import a character designed elsewhere (e.g. cute character designed as part of Inkscape lesson). Once a character has been imported, it can be further modified. 2. Lesson 2 1. In this example a small yellow circle (a simple gold coin) is created and named ‘food’. Set position of character and food, have food disappear when eaten, have character indicate it ate the food. 2. It also broadcasts a message ‘eaten’ that the fish will use to change or say something when it eats food. Lesson 3 Lesson 4

STS-2020-Lesson 14 Hair-by-Chas SCRATCH TUTORIAL SPACE SHUTTLE MISSION STS-2020 Lesson 14 Create a Missile Sprite Description. This lesson, we will use the Paint Editor to create a Missile spite. If you haven't already, Launch the Scratch program from your desktop. Let's get started!!! Draw a missile. When you are done click OK In the Sprite info area, rename it to Missile1. Us the Grow and Shrink buttons to resize the Missile sprite.

Scratch Exercise 2 Scratch Exercise 2: Creating a Simple Sight Word Game using Random Motion and Conditional Statements. The real power in programing lies in the ability to have objects ("Sprites") in your world interact with each other and cause changes in behavior or action. In Exercise 2 we will learn how to: Draw your own Sprite. Step 1: Create a new Sprite. 1. 5. 6. 7. 8. Step 2: Making the "after" move about the screen under its own power. 9. button to the scripts pane. 10. (forever tile) to the scripts area because we want this action to continue as long as the game is running. 11. 12. 13. 14. 15. 16. 17. 18. 19. 20. 21. Step 3: When your Sprite touches the "after," an action will happen (sound will play). To accomplish this step the "after" sprite will need to know if it is "touching" Sprite1 and an action to do once they touch. If "after" is touching Sprite1 - then play sound. We will use the following things for this step: "forever if" command record sound play sound command 22. 23. 24. 25. 26. 27.

AR SPOT: An Augmented-Reality Programming Environment for Children | Augmented Environments Lab AR SPOT is an augmented-reality authoring environment for children. An extension of MIT’s Scratch project, this environment allows children to create experiences that mix real and virtual elements. Children can display virtual objects on a real-world scene observed through a video camera, and they can control the virtual world through interactions between physical objects. This project aims to expand the range of creative experiences for young authors, by presenting AR technology in ways appropriate for this audience. In this process, we investigate how young children conceptualize augmented reality experiences, and shape the authoring environment according to this knowledge. Download (Windows only) Installation Instructions Download the ZIP file, and unpack it.In the SpotDocumentation folder, you will find a file called “SPOT Cards”. AR SPOT Details Users can interact through two types of objects: cards and knobs. Resources

[Level 1] Programming: Scratch | NZACDITT What is this Resource? This document was prepared by Sumant Murugesh and Tim Bell at the University of Canterbury. It is not an official document, but is offered as an evolving guide to the resources that are available for teaching the new material in NCEA Digital Technologies (currently focussed on the Programming and Computer Science strand). Achievement StandardThese resources relate mostly to the proposed Digital Technologies Achievement Standard AS91076 / 1.46 (Construct a basic computer program for a specified task) ObjectivesBe able to read, understand, write, and debug simple software programs Construct a basic computer program using program control structuresTest and debug a program on a sample of expected inputs Context At this level students will learn to read, write and debug simple programs.
