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 educators, where we will:

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

The meetup is open to all Boston-area educators, including those that have no previous Scratch experience. We particularly encourage educators from the same school, program, etc. to attend together as a group. Registration is limited to 40 people. The workshop is free and includes lunch.

I also want to learn about remixes and the Scratch website. I am intrigued by the project: For the People of Japan. and its Remix Visualization.

Sandra Bleecker

That sounds like fun (but doesn't it all?! <smile>) -- I would be interested as well.  Thanks, Karen.

Janet Dee

I am definitely interested.

I was think about doing a breakout session about debugging activities. Any interest?
