After my experiences with Scratch it is definitely a resource that you could use with students. I did find parts of it challenging, however this is because it is completely new to me. If students were introduced to programming at an early stage it would not appear so daunting to them.

I found that it would be a suitable design resource for high school students. I found it challenging, however very engaging and addictive. I am unsure how this would benefit all students, as it was difficult in some areas to program and get perfect. Personally, I wouldn't use this program within my classroom.

I agree Katrina, this progam would be too hard for most primary school students to grasp

"Det visuella programmeringsspråket Scratch är en spännande satsning från forskargruppen Lifelong Kindergarten på MIT. Jag skrev om Scratch i början av året, i samband med att Mitch Resnick, som leder forskargruppen, höll en presentation på Learning Without Frontiers 2012 i London."
