The video”Teaching Kids to Think Using Scratch.” was highly informative. I think this will be a great tool in the classroom due to fact that it forces to think critically and abstractly. I like how this program combines games and fun activities for kids to learn somewhat harder subjects such as math.
I have never worked with any programing software before however, from watching this video I feel I could navigate my way through scratch with a small since of ease. I am excited more research on how this is working in classrooms.
Overall, this program is allowing teachers to give students the tools they need to work through the program itself and the program challenges the child to apply what they have learned. This is a very successful way to incorporate all aspects of the learning process.
