Scratch Educator Meetup
Saturday, June 2, 2012
MIT Media Lab
Hosted by the ScratchEd Team

Want to learn more about Scratch?
Want to meet other Scratch educators and share ideas?

Join us at MIT Media Lab for a three-hour BYOL (Bring Your Own Laptop) meetup for Scratch educators, where we will:

  • share strategies for integrating Scratch into classroom practice
  • explore the core ideas underlying Scratch
  • self-organize into different interest groups and hands-on activities
  • introduce you to ScratchEd, the website where educators share their Scratch ideas, experiences, and resources

The meetup is open to all Boston-area educators with some previous Scratch experience. This meetup is for you if you can answer yes to one of the following:

  • I know how to snap Scratch blocks together
  • I have created a project in Scratch
  • I use Scratch in my teaching practice
  • I have attended a previous Scratch meetup or workshop

Scratch Educator Meetups are held every first Saturday of the month during the school year. We particularly encourage educators from the same school, program, etc. to attend together as a group. The workshop is free and includes lunch.

 Thanks Sean, that's what I'm thinking about for my next year courses.


It'd be great to hear others' responses.

I'm interested in discussing the topic that Sean proposes!

I'm also hoping to get some help/feedback on a "Scratch Educator Census" that I'm putting together.

Hi group -- my goal (one of them) for Saturday is to hear about how folks are using the networking aspect of Scratch. I'm really interested in the way the social network aspect of Scratch can play into the construction process in a creative and collaborative way. Thanks!
