Do you love stories? Do you want to learn how to create your own interactive digital stories? Join members of the Scratch Team at MIT Media Lab for a hands-on introduction to storytelling with Scratch. Scratch is a programming language that makes it easy for young people (ages 8 and up) to create their own interactive stories and share their creations online with others. As students program and share with Scratch, they learn to think creatively, reason systematically and work collaboratively, while also learning important computational ideas.
In this hands-on session, participants will be introduced to Scratch, create interactive stories, view examples of stories created by young people and hear how Scratch is being used by educators for storytelling. No prior experience necessary.
