This Saturday, April 16, I’ll be leading a “Scratch Camp Facilitator Workshop” from 9 am to 1 pm at the Casady School in Oklahoma City. This FREE, hands-on workshop for educators is sponsored by The Div (@thedivorg), a non-profit based in Edmond, Oklahoma, focused on providing coding experiences for students. If you’re interested in attending, we still have room if you register online. The Div will be organizing summer coding workshops for kids, and workshop participants may have paid opportunities to facilitate/lead these workshops/camps in Oklahoma.
This evening I spent several hours updating the Oklahoma Scratch Camp Google Site resource page for Saturday. This is the same Google Site I’ve used for past Scratch Camps in 2012 and 2013. All the resources are licensed CC-BY, so if there is anything here that you’d like to use please copy and use it with attribution! This is the Google Presentation I created, which includes a series of 11 “Keys for Successful Scratch Learning.”
I’m getting a little more skilled in my use of Google Sites these days, and included a dynamic “table of contents” for the workshop resource page at the top of the first content column. I included a variety of Scratch-related videos in the second column, including this new 30 second ad for Scratch from Cartoon Network which Mitch Resnik (@mres) tweeted about on Thursday.
