One lazy afternoon, when I was enjoying my afternoon tea, two funny yellow birds showed up at my door. They introduced themselves as Tweet and Mini Tweet. I guess they are twins, but one is much much bigger than the other. They came with questions, and, boys, did I have the answer!

Southend Linux User Group Programming scratch The Scratch software was launched in 2007. It is free, and is available in nearly 50 languages. The scratch home site has lots of programming examples, many written by young adults, (8 - 16 years) so perhaps the first impression is that Scratch capabilities are limited to that age range. ScratchMathGames - computersforcreativity Building Math Games using Scratch is a good example of project based learning - it is long term, collaborative, interdisciplinary, and has a real world application. Students must manage their own time to meet the deadlines provided. The Math games require players to solve math problems that are randomly created. Solving problems correctly allows the user to advance to the goals - which varied from getting oxygen in an underwater world, shopping online to escaping from sharks. Students learn advanced programming skills like variables, conditionals, user inputs, random numbers, and messaging. The Math games can be created in 5-8 classes of 30-40 minutes.
The Brighter Futures Blog » Blog Archive Scratch Lesson 1 » The Brighter Futures Blog Do you like playing computer games? Would you like to make your own games? With Scratch, a clever piece of software that is completely free to use, you can create your own animations, interactive stories and games. It’s free to sign up for your own account (although you might want an adult to help you set that up) and you don’t even need to download anything. In a series of how-to guides we shall explore the tools that Scratch offers to make our own games. You do not need to follow these guides but they might help if you want some ideas to get you started.
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).
Scratch Programming Introduction – The Basics This Scratch tutorial is the first half of chapter 3 from the book, Scratch 1.4: Beginner’s Guide. The tutorial introduces Scratch programming and the Scratch interface. The anticipation of learning a new programming language can sometimes leave us frozen on the starting line, not knowing what to expect or where to start. In this two-part article, we will:
AR SPOT: An Augmented-Reality Programming Environment for Children 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.
ScratchThat! techConnect ScratchThat! is a project developed by IHMC's techConnect that allows anyone to teach MIT's Scratch with little or no experience with the program or computer programming. This project will consist of 4 lessons that can be used to teach students at a young age. By the end of these 4 lessons, students should be able to make their own basic stories, animations, games, music, and art. Guidelines for a Scratch Club are also provided so that students can continue their experience with Scratch and computer programming.

Learn to Teach , Teach to Learn / Computer Programming with Scratch What is Computer Programming? Writing computer programs means writing instructions, that will make the computer follow and run a program based on those instructions. The process includes designing, writing, testing, debugging/troubleshooting , and maintaining code. This code is written in a programming language. What is Scratch?
