Checking out the downloadable Creative Computing Scratch guides (one for educators and one for learners) from @hgse

From my friends who attended the Scratch@MIT conference over the summer (while I was stuffing my face with BBQ on my #diameates road trip with @BangkokGlutton), I learned about a new student workbook to go along with the Creative Computing curriculum guide that was created by members of the ScratchEd research team at Harvard Graduate School of Education. Many thanks to Christan Balch, Michelle Chung, and Karen Brennan for writing the guides and sharing their work with a Creative Commons Attribution-ShareAlike 4.0 International License!

The following excerpt is from Creative Computing website:

We encourage you to use as much or as little of the guide as you like, to design new activities, and to remix the included activities. No matter your prior experience or expertise, we think of every educator as a co-designer of the Creative Computing experience. We would love to learn about what you’re doing, so we encourage you to document and share your experiences with us and with other educators via the ScratchEd community at http://scratched.gse.harvard.edu

The guide and the workbook are downloadable as PDFs or PPTs. I linked them below:

Also, the good folks of Creative Computing also offered an online course. Maybe they’ll offer it again. Here’s the information: https://creative-computing.appspot.com/preview
