This week we examined a computer programming program called “Scratch.”  “Scratch” allows users to create their own interactive programs involving stories, art, animations, games and music.  The program is aimed at mostly younger children, as it provides them with an introduction to the world of computer programming.  This will allow them to be somewhat familiar with using computers once they reach higher ages.  “Scratch” is centered on solely creative activities, but does provide a taste of what it is like to set up a computer program and how to deal with programming language.  For me, once I downloaded the program, it took a little while to figure everything out.  But once I got a hold of it, “Scratch” was pretty fun to mess around with.  I can see it being useful to future generations in helping them to become familiar with and better understand how to use computer programming.
