hello is it still possible to share the contents of the workshop " Using Scratch in Your Classroom " ? especially for those who could not be there ... thank you very much
Karen Brennan

Sorry for the delay! Here's an outline of the workshop and some slides. As you can probably see from the outline, our intention was to situate ways of introducing Scratch in hands-on experiences. One challenge, of course, is that there's so much happening with learning Scratch that it's sometimes difficult to step back and reflect on what that experience might be like for one's own students.

than you very much ! i'll take a look carefully at your attachments and post my thoughts

Sure! I'll post details about the workshop (or some variant) this week...
