Last night I found out the Scratch team at MIT has the new Scratch up and ready for testing. I did not have much time to play around, but saw enough to know I really like it. Everything seems to work as well as it did before. The paint editor looks like it will be much nicer once it is active.
I’m excited to have Scratch available for students without the need for downloads and updates. Here in Goochland we are pretty nimble when it comes to deploying new software, but in some surrounding counties, getting the application on student computers has been a barrier to kids accessing this amazing tool.
I can’t wait to have many more teachers and students scratching soon.
