We're going to begin developing coding skills using a variety of different programming languages beginning with SCRATCH.
SCRATCH is a free programming language created by the MIT Media Lab.
In this tutorial you will:
Navigate to the SCRATCH homepage (link below) and create your account by clicking on "Join Scratch"
*Use your Google address in order to easily share your SCRATCH projects in the future.
Access the "Learn Scratch" website and select Video Courses Scratch 1 (8 lessons).
Lesson 1 Motion and Sound
Lesson 2 Repeating Actions
Lesson 3 Playing with Color
Lesson 4 Create Your Own Sprite
Record important procedures and key processes in your notebook (as a virtual lab entry) in enough detail that you could repeat your actions without watching the video tutorials. . . . you will use these entries as a reference guide in the future when working with SCRATCH.
Each Lesson Tutorial has one or more "Extension" activities relating to it (these are listed on the bottom of each Lesson page).
