Scratch is an interactive program that allows students to create interactive stories and games. The program developed at the MIT Media Lab allows students to use simple algorithms to create a multitude of projects that can be easily shared between students and teacher. Scratch has many elements to its structure which would allow for its incorporation into the maths curriculum. An idea for the use of the program could include using Scratch as a tool to reinforce simple geometry concepts that have been previously taught in the classroom. Teachers can also create assessment pieces using the program.

Aaron Lutter's insight:
The blog promotes the use of ipad’s across a variety of curriculum strands including mathematics, which resulted in high levels of student enthusiasm. The effectiveness of different apps including Garage band and Creative Book Builder and how and when they should be incorporated is also a key element of the blog. This ultimately allows the students to work at their own pace without having to wait for further instructions from the teacher. The maths component included a number app to create a spread sheet to calculate the cost of the components of the vehicle and hire of the equipment that the students were constructing as part of the unit. Would definitely consider using different parts from this blog in planning my own units of work.
