Class notes for the first three sessions of my new Scratch class at a family oriented maker space in Burlington MA, Einstein's workshop, teaching K-6 kids to program. This time I have more girls than boys in my class, great for STEM equality !

Sorry Mirta somehow I never saw your message. Of course! Reuse and remix them as necessary. I am preparing a new set right now and will post those once they are completed.

Do you think this is a good use of screen real estate in Google Plus? My home screen has content in less than half the space. #UX #googleplus

I like white spaces too. But left sidebar is menu, ok. right sidebar tells me I can use hang out. left half of main content is the stream which is what I want. right half of main content  tells me I need to complete my profile, suggested communities, trending. That's as important as the info stream?

The real issue is how to display a time sequenced (or other sequenced) info stream with a wide screen. Ironically the iPad / magazine boxed type view maybe the answer, but that's partly because the iPad screen is narrower, and it is designed for horizontal pagination. The facebook profile view is sorta like that but I don't like that either, because sometimes the time sequence gets confused, at least for me :-)
