I haven't been posting as much here because I am posting on my other blog which is for another grad class, but thought I'd share this one. I love Scratch. Here are some multimedia Halloween "cards" made by some of my students using Scratch. Scratch is a program that teaches kids how to code using blocks or puzzle pieces to string together commands to create a script. It was developed by the Lifelong Kindergarten Project at MIT.
You may have to click on the flag to start the script. But it should start by itself.
