Build Your Own Blocks (BYOB) - 6 views

  •  
    Welcome to the distribution center for BYOB (Build Your Own Blocks), an advanced offshoot of Scratch, a visual programming language primarily for kids from the Lifelong Kindergarten Group at the MIT Media Lab. This version, developed by Jens Mönig with design input and documentation from Brian Harvey, is an attempt to extend the brilliant accessibility of Scratch to somewhat older users-in particular, non-CS-major computer science students-without becoming inaccessible to its original audience. BYOB 3 adds first class lists, sprites, and procedures to BYOB's original contribution of custom blocks and recursion.

Clutter | Home | Create - Connect - Share - 6 views

  •  
    The goal of Clutter is to allow users to collaborate by linking Scratch projects. On the Scratch site it is possible to add projects to galleries, however, this is only one way to bring Scratch projects together. In Clutter there are three ways to bring projects together: Story Clutters allow you order projects sequentially. Secret Word Clutters requires users to type in a secret word to move to the next project in a sequence. Link Clutters allow you to go to any project inside a Clutter if you know the link word that is associated with the project.

Introducing Programming to Preschoolers - 2 views

  •  
    Since MIT's Lifelong Kindergarten group released Scratch in 2007, kids ages 8 to 13 have built more than 2.2 million animations, games, music, videos and stories using the kid-friendly programming language. Scratch allows kids to snap together graphical blocks of instructions, like Lego bricks, to control sprites-the movable objects that perform actions. Sprites can dance, sing, run and talk. Now, with a grant from the National Foundation of Science, Lifelong Kindergarten is collaborating with Tufts University's DevTech Research Group to make Scratch Jr, a new version aimed at kids in preschool to second grade. The expected launch date is summer 2012.

Programming With Scratch - A Middle Level Math Unit - 2 views

  •  
    We have developed a six day Scratch unit for 7th and 8th grade math. One class period of each six-day cycle is devoted to Scratch, effectively spreading the lessons out over a six week period. During their course of study, students learn simple terminology, are introduced to the principles of object-oriented programming, and create original animations and games that are uploaded to our Scratch Web Gallery.
