Scratch Programming - Technology Mandatory Multimedia classes.

The resources used here have been uploaded (and modified) from Scratch M.I.T. and are acknowledged as being excellent tools for learning programming.
In the 16 Scratches below, there are different levels and students can choose their own level of difficulty.
Before you do anything, you need to read this Resources link.

How it all works.

First you need to open Scratch, then select a task, then read the screen dump coding instructions for each Scratch task, then create your Scratches screen dumps of the steps which need to be taken to create the specific Scratch task.

When you are more confident in Scratch programming, you can then modify any part of the Scratch coding to be more creative.

You can also use internet researched backgrounds and images for your Scratch files and for your Sprites.

All Scratch files created/modified must be of educational standard and feature NO weapons of any sort and must DEFINITELY NOT feature violence in any form.

There are NO games to be created at school. That's fun stuff at home!

It is expected over the term that students will complete at least 10 of the Scratches.
Scratch can be downloaded at home, (Scratch Offline Editor) using the Scratch download link:
For each Scratch task there is also a ranking that shows the level of difficulty.
