Using the Scratch Website for Sharing
Last year we only use our computer’s local harddrive for storing student projects. It was not the idea situation. We tried to get everyone the same laptop each week, but that does not always work. It also make “show-and-tell” very hard to do. These older Windows laptops just do not behave well when trying to use thumbdrives with them quickly. (Only if Scratch would work on iPads…)
This year we are going to put all our student and teacher work on the main Scratch website. However, we are a K-6 school, and we do want some level of control of their online activities. So we have setup a group of school assigned user names for each student. Each student is assigned a username for use during the year. We will need to figure out what to do at the end of this year!
