Scratch and ScratchEd at SIGCSE 2012

SIGCSE (ACM Special Interest Group on Computer Science Education) is a forum for educators to discuss issues related to the development, implementation, and/or evaluation of computing programs, curricula, and courses, as well as syllabi, laboratories, and other elements of teaching and pedagogy. The upcoming SIGCSE annual conference will be held February 29 - March 2 in Raleigh, North Carolina, and this year’s theme is: "Teaching, Learning, and Collaborating," commemorating North Carolina's renowned "Research Triangle" where SIGCSE 2012 will be held.
