Coding with Scratch: Connected Learning Workshops

Today, creating and expressing oneself with technology are key fluencies for civic engagement. How can we increase the diversity of youth who become engaged in creating with new tech? We will explore ways to engage youth in their diverse interests, like fashion, hip-hop, or sports, through related activities using Scratch (a creative computing environment). Based on this design experience, we will discuss ways to develop and facilitate connected learning activities for youth. All levels welcome, from newcomers to experienced Scratchers. Bring a laptop (if available) to this hands-on workshop.
