"Invent with Scratch" Screencast Series

Posted by Al Sweigart in news

Scratch itself is hosted at http://scratch.mit.edu

I highly recommend Scratch as a teaching tool for younger kids who may not be ready for Python programming or are frustrated by their slow typing. Scratch is a drag-and-drop environment with code "blocks" that snap together.
