Scratch Links

From the many discussions we have had today at the Media Lab at MIT, I can tell you that Scratch is truly a life-changing product. For the kids (and older than kids) who use it, embrace it, make it their tool of choice, it is opening up doors that no one knew existed. The kids all around the globe are making projects, creating companies and unions, in which to share and collaborate their ideas.

The discussion last week at the Building Learning Communities conference was about collaboration, communication, designing curriculum that creates student learning environments that foster student self-directed learning, while using the global arena. Scratch, from what I can tell, is doing just that.

If your school district hasn’t downloaded this FREE, multi-platform program, you might want to ask why not.
