If you’re heading to NCCE this year, I hope to see you there. I’m leading a Scratch workshop Wednesday morning, so whether you’re there with me or not, I’d like to share some great Scratch resources with you.
- ScratchEd | scratched.media.mit.edu – A resource rich directory of Scratch lessons, tools, and ideas. Definitely the first place to go when looking to bring Scratch into your classroom.
- Scratch Wiki | wiki.scratch.mit.edu/wiki - A wealth of documentation and tutorials. When a students asks a question I can’t answer, we head straight to the wiki.
