Digital teaching resource 1: Scratch Jr

The YouTube video below (Carey, 2015) is my digital teaching resource.

Scratch Jr is a free coding app that enables children as young as five years old to create interactive games and animations on iPads and Android tablets. A more comprehensive, web-based version of this software, Scratch, is suitable for 8 years and over.

The DevTech Research Group at Tufts Univerity developed Scratch Jr in collaboration with the Lifelong Kindergarten Group at the MIT Media Lab and the Playful Invention Company.
