Video Game Design with Scratch

Engage your students by allowing them to create games using the free cross platform application Scratch. Additionally, learn how to use this tool to design educational games. See how Scratch promotes collaboration by sharing, downloading, and remixing other users’ code. Participants are encouraged to bring their own laptop, preloaded with the software, and pre-registered with an account (http://scratch.mit.edu/signup) so they may follow along as we build a simple game. Overall, this workshop will provide an overview of the software, basic programming concepts, and resources for future lessons. (note: session takes place in a computer lab with Scratch already installed)
