Do you know Scratch?
I was browsing on web through interesting and innovative project about learning and I read about it. A world I didn’t know appear on the screen.
Scratch is a project of the Lifelong Kindergarten Group at the MIT Media Lab of Boston.
Scratch helps young people learn to think creatively, reason systematically, and work collaboratively: the ability to code computer programs is an important part of literacy in our society. When people learn to code in Scratch, they learn important strategies for solving problems, designing projects, and communicating ideas. Amazing!
Students are learning with Scratch at all levels (from elementary school to college) and across disciplines (such as math, computer science, language arts, social studies).
Scratch is free of charge and is designed especially for ages 8 to 16, but is used by people of all ages. Scratch is available in more than 40 languages, is used in more than 150 different countries and millions of people (even right now!) are creating Scratch projects in a wide variety of settings, including homes, schools, museums, libraries, and community centers.
There are incredible innovations and opportunity in Today’s world and Scratch is one of those.
