In September 2014 Computing will be a new curriculum subject and I wanted to make some resources that could be used to support Scratch
After seeing these hands-on blocks I thought it would be great if anyone could make their own. So I set about creating some vector versions of the standard Scratch blocks that could be scaled to any size required. As I created them I also thought how useful it would be if Teachers could use them in other ways, for example, displays, PowerPoints and on Interactive Whiteboards.
With this in mine the Scratch Block Package currently contains 66 blocks in the following formats:
- SVG – Scalable Vector Graphics.
- EMF – Vectors for use in Microsoft Office products.
- PNG – High resolution raster images with transparency.
- SMART Gallery Package – Vectors for use with SMART Notebook.
I hope these are of use to the education community. Blocks currently missing (sensing and operators) will be added in the near future.
