1. Why Scratch?

I am using Scratch for several reasons:

  • It is a quick and easy way to introduce students to coding
  • Block-based coding allows younger students to grasp basic coding skills without having to battle with difficult programming syntax
  • It is an easy way to take pseudo-code & flowcharts to the point of execution in code to create a running program
  • There is a large online community
  • It is free!
