At the final Scratch Educator Meetup of 2012, we held an informal Show & Tell session, where participants could share how they are using Scratch in their teaching practices. In the past, educators have presented students' Scratch projects, shared a personal project, or started a discussion on a related topic.
Rosemary Slattery teaches high school computer courses and regularly attends the monthly meetups at MIT. During Show & Tell at the December 2012 meetup, she shared her experiences introducing middle school students to Scratch through a recent initiative at the local library near her school. The program was aimed at elementary and middle school students new to Scratch and programming. In the video, Rosemary describes how she helped students create interactive sprites organized around a Halloween-theme, and then, challenged them to animate Halloween jokes using Scratch. Check out the video to see the projects in action. You can download the projects below or view others in the Peabody Library Scratch gallery.
The Show & Tell session is a recurring session at the ScratchEd Meetup events. Check out other Show & Tell videos from past Meetups.
