Scratch Educator Show & Tell Videos

10 short videos of educators sharing lesson plans and student projects.

On Sunday, January 23, 2011, we hosted a Creative Computing Reunion for all the educators who attended CS4HS workshops in 2009 and 2010, as well as their guests and colleagues. CS4HS is a summer workshop for middle-school and high-school teachers organized by the MIT Media Lab, in collaboration with Google's CS4HS initiative.

You can read more about the 2009 and 2010 events on ScratchEd or find more information on the CS4HS website.
