Organizing an experiment : teaching Scratch in 2 languages.

« Researching Scratch
3 replies [Last post]
I am very motivated and curious about finding the perfect format and setting up a cycle of lessons where the young students are stimulated to learn 2 languages  at the same time : Scratch coding blocks and a foreign language. How to blend and gamify as much as possible these 2 foundations ?

I have no idea where to start OR find resources, people who have tried this before.

Anyone intrigued to team up with me.

Obviously I welcome also non-english speaking experts (i.e. Italians)

Thanks in advance
Grazie

Hi Grazie!
The facebook group will have a ton of educators who may have worked in a similar context, or who know people that have. Re-posting there, you'll probably find some helpful responses :). 

Here are a few project links that may be helpful in the meantime.

Hi Grazie!
Have you shared this question in the Teaching with Scratch Facebook Group? We're slowly migrating discussions over to there, and I think you'll find a lot of great support from the educators in the group!
