SCRATCH CLUB vai alla versione in italiano
It is a club for children that will meet up once every month to promote the active use of technology by making video games with Scratch.
What is Scratch?
Scratch is a platform created by Mitch Resnick (look at the TEDx video), professor of learning research at the MIT Media Lab, to promote:
- computational thinking and problem-solving skills;
- creative teaching and learning;
- self-expression and collaboration;
- equity in computing.
How does it work?
The two-hour meetings at the school are held in the afternoon once a month and are reserved for 8 to 10-year-olds.
How do I join the club?
Parents can sign-up via email and write to the school at firstname.lastname@example.org.
What do you need/ could bring?
A laptop and a mouse if you are not used to using the trackpad, but most importantly, creative thinking!
How do I create a Scratch account?
Before the first meeting, you need to create a scratch account. Remember to write down or save your credentials and bring them with you on the day of the activity. Here are the instructions on how to create the account.
