Scratch 2.0

Virtual Class Discussion: Scratchjr, Please?

Considering how far behind we are in working through the Scratch 2.0 tutorials perhaps we should switch to Scratch Jr. intended for kids 5-7. LOL! Here’s a link to an online post about the new Mitch Resnick project:

For our virtual class discussion, please explain as a comment on this post:

What has been the most difficult aspect of programming with Scratch 2.0? Or how has Resnick’s ideas in the StarLogo book changed in relation to Scratch 2.0?

Please post your initial comment by Thursday March 20 and then comment on two different comments from your classmates by Sunday evening March 23.

Don’t forget to submit your midterm writeup.
