Essential skills – Children can code before they read?

2 Aug

Just found an interesting website ” Scratch

With Scratch, you can program your own interactive stories, games, and animations — and share your creations with others in the online community.

Scratch helps young people learn to think creatively, reason systematically, and work collaboratively — essential skills for life in the 21st century.

Scratch is a project of the Lifelong Kindergarten Group at the MIT Media Lab. It is provided free of charge.

    This is great, I am going to look into this as I have a child with dyslexia and one with a speech delay and am always looking for new and creative ways to get them to learn.
    Found you on Bloggy Moms!
