The conference, held at MIT Media Labs, brings together educators, researchers, developers, and other members of the Scratch community to share how they use Scratch, the free, block-based, web-based programming environment, in and out of classrooms. The theme of this year’s conference is Many Paths, Many Styles, which aims to highlight the value of diversity in creative learning experiences.
I’ll be running a workshop on Mathematical Simulation in Scratch, which will introduce participants to some of the ways I’ve been using Scratch in my math classes. I’m looking forward to sharing, and learning! And I’m grateful to Math for America, whose partial support has made it possible for me to attend.
The 2016 Scratch@MIT conference runs from August 4th through 6th. You can find more information here.
