Two remarks:


1: Is there anywhere I can sign up to receive more information about the 2012 conference?

2: Starting next week I will be teaching Scratch to mid-elemenary students. I am prepared and ready for this. I feel this will be a challenge; one I am able to meet. If anyone has any ideas or pointers, I will certainly appreciate it.

 Yay! I'm in the midst of introducing Scratch in an art college in St. Paul, MN. This is great news to share!

It is incredible, and exciting at the same time, Scratch Conference 2012 is only one year ahead. Thank you MIT, Longlife Kindergarten, ScratchEd Team for Scratch, it is a wonderful educational tool. And most of all, Scratch Conference is an important meeting for all of us as teachers that use Scratch.
