Free Technology for Teachers: Scratch Jr. Provides a Great Environment for Learning About Programming | Malta Digital Curation and Learning | Scoop.it
“ Earlier this morning I received an email from a subscriber to the PracticalEdTech.com newsletter. She was looking for suggestions on programming apps. One that came mind immediately is Scratch Jr. Scratch Jr. is based on the popular online Scratch program in which students can learn to program. Scratch Jr for iPad uses the same drag and drop programming principles used in Scratch. On Scratch Jr students can program multimedia stories and games.”
