Last year, we were excited to host more than 300 Scratch educators and enthusiasts at the first Scratch@MIT conference (http://scratch.mit.edu/conference/ ).
This year, we’re trying something different. We’re reaching out to the Scratch community to organize a network of gatherings, on the same day in all parts of the world, where people can meet, share, and learn more about Scratch.
We’re planning to send out an official announcement of Scratch Day on February 16. But, before then, we’re contacting a few of you who have been actively involved with Scratch, to help get things started. We’re hoping that you’ll be willing to sign up early to organize a Scratch Day event, to inspire others with ideas for organizing their own Scratch Day.
There are many different ways to organize a Scratch Day. You could arrange a hands-on workshop to introduce newcomers to Scratch, or an exhibition to showcase projects by local Scratchers, or a session where educators share their experiences with Scratch, or an informal gathering where Scratchers can meet one another and exchange ideas.
To learn more, visit the Scratch Day website (http://day.scratch.mit.edu ), where you can announce your Scratch Day event, ask questions, find resources, join discussions, and connect with other organizers.
We’re hoping that Scratch Day will provide many opportunities to engage people in creative learning experiences. We hope you’re excited by the possibilities, and we look forward to working together with you to bring Scratch Day to your part of the world.
