We invite you to join us for a free workshop that will be taking place Saturday, November 21 from 1-3pm at MIT Media Lab. Information below and at


What can you create with Scratch? In this two-hour BYOL (Bring Your Own Laptop) workshop for educators, we will:

  • explain the core ideas underlying Scratch
  • guide you through a set of introductory hands-on activities
  • discuss strategies for integrating Scratch into classroom practice
  • introduce you to ScratchEd, a companion website where educators share their Scratch ideas, experiences, and resources

The workshop is open to all Boston-area educators, specifically those that have no previous Scratch experience.

Registration is limited to 35 people. The workshop is free, but your participation is not confirmed until we receive a $20 deposit check (along with contact information, including name and email address), payable to Lifelong Kindergarten at:

Scratch Workshop
c/o Lifelong Kindergarten
77 Massachusetts Ave.
Cambridge, MA 02139

Any chance this was recorded?

The workshop was postponed, but we plan to document the workshop when it takes place later this year.

Hi Karen,

Are you planning to record the workshop?  I'd love to see how it goes. 


Also, you might already have more than enough interest, but if you want to spread the word about Scratch in general, and your workshop in particular, I've found to be an extremely useful site for professional networking. 


Best of luck,


Karen Brennan

I hadn't thought about recording the workshop, but it's an interesting suggestion! I'm going to see if one of the interns working on ScratchEd this term might be able to attend and help with the recording process.
