Using Scratch in the Classroom: Five Ideas Are your students interested in the "Maker Movement," a growing community of DIY tech enthusiasts who are applying creative skills to create everything from robots to printers using free software and Web-based tools? MIT’s Scratch lets junior programmers and aspiring "makers" ages eight and up create video animations, games, interactive stories, digital instruments and more. Instead of requiring technical coding, the free Scratch tool uses color-coded bars that are placed in an interlocking command sequence. Currently, Scratch is available for Mac, Windows and Linux via the Scratch Web site. Scratch is great for all student levels, both beginner and advanced. Keep in mind, however, that the tool is best used by educators who have at least a basic programming background.
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.

Lego's new toy robot teaches kids coding and engineering Lego Mindstorms robots have done wonders getting kids interested in science and programming. Now Lego Education is launching a new robot learning system, dubbed WeDo 2.0, to help teach kids about engineering, technology, and coding. The Lego Education WeDo 2.0 system is a combination of hardware and software that gives elementary school children more than 40 hours of hands-on projects. Lego Education, a division of Denmark’s Lego, unveiled the system at the 2016 International CES, the big tech trade show in Las Vegas this week. The robot itself is a wireless, tablet-ready system that is designed for a younger crowd.
Porting Scratch Projects The Scratch project format (.sb or .sb2) can only be read by the Scratch editor. Compiling a scratch project can convert it to another format that can be opened without scratch. Compiling was a popular suggestion for Scratch 2.0, However, it wasn't added in the normal online or offline editors. To get around this, several Scratchers have made ways to turn them into more widely known formats such as exe and app. Kodu Kodu is a new visual programming language made specifically for creating games. It is designed to be accessible for children and enjoyable for anyone. The programming environment runs on the Xbox, allowing rapid design iteration using only a game controller for input.

Coding in French - Free Printable Coding Blocks It’s a pleasure to have a guest blog post today by Ashley Soltesz, a fellow French teacher who like me is on a mission to share French resources with others so we don’t have to keep recreating the wheel! She’s made some amazing free French printable coding blocks you can use in your classrooms, enjoy! A primary goal for me as a French Language Teacher is for my students to see the relevance in learning to communicate in French, be it in Reading, Writing, or Speaking. I want my students to know that what they do in English, they can do in French and in turn, receive many opportunities because of this skill that they have.
