Scratch Educator Show & Tell Videos - NYC Meetup, April 2011

Video of educators sharing teaching practices and Scratch projects at the New York City ScratchEd Meetup.

Taking the show on the road, ScratchEd held a Scratch Educator Meetup in New York City on April 28, 2011. The event was co-hosted by Cameron Fadjo and the Institute for Learning Technologies at Teachers College, Columbia University. At the NYC Scratch Educator Meetup, we held a session called Show & Tell, where participants shared how they are using Scratch in their teaching practices.

We were especially excited to hear about the diverse ways that Scratch is being used in and out of New York City classrooms. Some educators presented student work, curriculum plans, or even their very first Scratch project!

The Scratch projects presented are attached at the bottom of this page.

Nancy Costa shared animated Aesop's Fables that were created in her 3rd-5th grade Technology Class.


Lou Lahana aka Techbrarian presented his curriculum for helping elementary and middle school students express social issues through Scratch projects and blogging.


LeRhonda Greats showed us the first sprite she ever created and animated in Scratch. She talked about what was challenging about the project and how she used a clever costume technique to make her sprite dance.


Susan Ettenheim and Francisco Cervantes presented Public Service Announcements (PSA) created by students in Susan's HS Animation course. Susan asked the group for suggestions on sharing student work and collaborating with other educators on her Scratch Cards project.


David Wells presented his very first Scratch project, which he created at the NYC Meetup during a hands-on session. The project was based on the Interactive Collage activity, following an architecture theme.


Donald Dagen, a volunteer educator for an after-school program, presented a 5th grade girl's Pacman project.
