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.

Sputnik Moment: 21st-Century Rocket Boys & Girls | edtechdigest.com - 2 views

  • What we are missing in the 21st century is the view that technology is not the gadgets and the hardware and the software. It is not the atoms or the photons or the electrons pulsing through the Internet or our home appliances. Rather, the technology is us. According to Dr. Kane, “Technology is human creativity and artistic expression… it is knowledge in action… knowledge with a purpose… it is the art in science and engineering…” According to this view, “technology is the space between our minds and our hands.” It is our imagination, our ability to tell stories, our drive to exist and make the world a better place. For Dr. Kane, “…this space is where the speed of light generation operates.”
