Please help us spread the news about our Alice in Wonderland game creation event http://www.alicegamejam.com/ which we jointly organize with the Scratch team and other great partners! There are two great ways how you can help:

Please help motivate kids, especially teenage girls, to take part in the online event being held from December 7-13, 2015 all over the world. One way is electronically, and another way is to send posters we have designed to middle and high schools in your area or even country. The ideal time for the poster to be hung out at schools is December 7. You can find several variants of the A2 sized posters, including some where the text has been left out so they can be easily translated into your language or add the logo of a local sponsor, at http://catrob.at/aliceposters --- please let us know at alice@alicegamejam.com 

We want to offer great prizes in a raffle to participating kids. If you can help us with some small giveaways that are attractive especially to teenage girls, please let us know via alice@alicegamejam.com--- if you want your giveaways can be also restricted to kids in your area.

Kind regards, and thank you for your support!!

Hi all! I am a new faculty member to my school this year and looking for good comp Sci related ice breakers to get to know the students! Any recommendations? We are going to play program the teacher but I want to try to learn their names and introduce CT at the same time so that will be the second lesson. Thanks!

Many of the students in our interdisciplinary, college-level, general education, computing+music course have trouble understanding local vs. global properties.  In our latest assignment,  two independent groups were trying to do very creative things by changing the volume and instrument "on the fly" as their programs ran.  They both ran into the same problem: that changing the volume or instrument in one sprite only affects the "play note" blocks IN THAT SPRITE.  That is, volume and instrument are LOCAL TO A SPRITE.  Tempo, on the other hand, is GLOBAL TO THE ENTIRE PROGRAM.  These concepts are critically important.
 
I therefore created the program linked below to set the volume in one sprite and have it apply to another sprite.  To do this, you have to use a global variable that is interpreted by the sprite in which the music is playing.  The example is at
 
https://scratch.mit.edu/projects/54567006/#editor  
This program has three sprites: a control, a "boy" sprite that gets softer as the music plays, and a "girl" sprite that simultaneously gets louder as the music plays. 

Of course anyone is welcome to use this demo in their own teaching if they find it helpful.

I finished this 2D Shooter. It helped me really understand the way cloning works in Scratch. Scratch is great for prototyping complex problems.

Cool have just remixed to add a score and make a little easier by waiting a little longer between clones of the baddies. Many thanks - love it

Join the workshop at https://creative-computing.appspot.com Creative Computing is a six-week online workshop for educators who want to learn more about using Scratch and supporting computational thinking in the classroom and other learning environments. The workshop, which is free, was held from Monday, June 3, 2013 and ended on Friday, July 12, 2013, but the materials and resources remain available online for anyone who wants to follow the activities at their own pace. The online workshop was followed by a day-long, in-person symposium at the Harvard Graduate School of Education on Saturday, July 13, 2013.

New Scratch course available:

"The University of Northern Iowa is pleased to announced that we will once
again be offering our online course "An Introduction to Programming using
Scratch"

This summer's participants will have six weeks (June 8-July 17) to
complete a six unit course. Each unit is a blend of 60-90 minutes of
lecture videos (roughly five minutes each), hands on guided activities, and
independent programming assignments. The course will require a TOTAL
commitment of approximately 20-25 hours. The pace of the course is up to
the participants who may start and end at their convenience, at any time
during the course offering - so long as the course is completed by July
17th. The course assumes no prior programming experience and will include
material on teaching Scratch for Logo, storytelling, text interaction, and
game playing, as well as coverage of some advanced topics.

You may participate in the course for personal development completely FREE
of charge. Participants interested in earning one-hour of graduate workshop
credit (suitable for license renewal in the state of Iowa) have the OPTION
of doing so for a fee of $75 billed by the University of Northern Iowa.

Please feel free to contact Ben Schafer for questions or additional information at schafer@cs.uni.edu. Further details and the registration
form are available at: www.cs.uni.edu/~schafer/outreach/cs4hs/."
The department of computer science at the University of Northern Iowa will once again be offering programs for teachers through Google's CS4HS program. The goal of these programs is to prepare teachers to use computational tools and thinking in their classrooms; both in computer science courses ...

Hi~
I have a question.
I am researching about the elementary text book for SW education.
In Korea, government announced that SW education will apply to public K-12 curriculum.
So, I am investigating the usage of some educational terms: programming, debugging, algorithm, computational thinking, etc.
Are there the usage of the terms on a public textbook in elementary education?
Please, let me know the case using the terms or website about it in public elementary educaiton of your country.
