Michael Badger has written several books for Packt Publishing including Beginner’s Guides for Scratch 1.4 and Scratch 2.0. He writes a regular Scratch programming column for Raspberry Pi Geek Magazine and frequently facilitates Scratch workshops for both parents and kids.
Teaching Scratch to Everyone
Michael approaches Scratch with the belief that we are all teachers. His writing on Scratch assumes that you not only want to learn Scratch but you want to share your knowledge with others. Motivated students can pick this book up and teach themselves how to program because the book takes a simple, strategic, and structured approach to learning Scratch.
Parents can grasp the fundamentals so that they can guide their children through introductory Scratch programming exercises. It’s perfect for home school families. Teachers of all disciplines from computer science to English can quickly come up to speed with Scratch and adapt the projects for use in the classroom.
Scratch provides an intuitive introduction to computer programming. If you want to teach your children, your students, or yourself programming concepts, then you’re in the right place.
Scratch is developed by the Lifelong Kindergarten group at the MIT Media Lab. See scratch.mit.edu.
