What's a Scratch Educator Meetup?

Scratch Educator:a teacher who wants to support computational creativity in the classroom and beyond, helping learnersfrom elementary school to high school, across curricular areas and settingsimagine, program, and share with Scratch

Scratch Educator Meetup: a gathering of Scratch Educators who want to learn with and from each other, sharing their ideas and strategies for supporting computational creativity in all its forms

What will we be doing at the meetup?

If you're new to the meetup format, here's what they are and how they work. Meetups are informal gatherings for educators who work with (or are interested in working with) Scratch. The meetups are organized into three parts:

1. We start with networking over light refreshments, getting to know fellow attendees and sharing what people want to explore during the meetup.

2. We collaboratively decide how to structure our learning and then form small groups based on our different interests. Maybe you want to have a discussion about classroom strategies or get more practice with Scratchor something else entirely. Feel free to move between groups if the session that you're in isn't working for you.

3. We gather as a whole group for lunch and group sharing. You might pose a question to discuss with the group, or share something from your classroom. This is a great time to inspire and be inspired.

What should I bring?

Curiosity. And a laptop that supports Flash will be helpful for the hands-on activities.

Anything I should know before coming to the meetup?
