  • After a quick speed dating activity to get everyone acquainted, the group brainstormed breakout session topics and formed an agenda for the meetup based on everyone's goals and interests.
  • Karen and Aaron led a breakout group on evaluation, where Ingrid presented the assessment activity she's been working on with her first and second graders.
  • Algot suggested a play session. Michelle and Gracie introduced Scratch and facilitated an open-build session, where participants created Scratch projects, explored the new Scratch curriculum guide and were introduced to the LEGO WeDo kit.
  • Over lunch, Janet shared her plans for using Scratch as a presentation tool for high school students. This led to a group discussion around strategies for integrating Scratch across different curricular areas.
