Introduction to Programming with Scratch

This course introduces the elements of basic programming using the innovative SCRATCH programming language developed by the Lifelong Kindergarten Group at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology Media Lab. SCRATCH allows student developers to assemble code blocks rather than typing code text, forcing them to focus on developing conceptual programming skills that can be applied to any advanced programming language. Course materials are based on "Starting from Scratch", a textbook developed in Scotland to introduce programming concepts to high school students.
