    PLANNED WORKSHOPS for SCRATCH DAY @ PACKER
    Keynote Speaker: Mitch Resnick, MIT
    Scratch: Widening the Walls for Learning
    Mitchel Resnick
    Lifelong Kindergarten Group, MIT Media Lab

    Seymour Papert used to say that educational technologies should have a low floor (easy to get started with) and a high ceiling (able to support sophisticated projects). With Scratch, we also tried to create wide walls -- that is, we wanted Scratch to appeal to people with many different interests, backgrounds, and learning styles. I'll talk about the wide diversity of ways that people have used Scratch -- and I hope to hear about some of your experiences with Scratch too!

    The PICO Cricket is a programmable device that works with sensors of various kinds and controls lights and motors. It is similar to the LEGO NXT, but is designed to facilitate artistic as well as robotics projects. The programming environment – PICO Blocks – is similar to Scratch. Following a brief introduction you will have an opportunity to build and program your own creations with PICO Crickets.

    This two-hour workshop is designed for those who are potential or current Chinese language learners or teachers, or second language and programming language learning researchers. In the workshop, Pierre and Carol will introduce the characteristics of Chinese along with the basics of Scratch and how it may be used to teach and learn Chinese characters. No prior experience with Scratch or Chinese is required. By the end of the session you will have gained hands-on experience in creating a language-teaching project, learned some Chinese and how to use Scratch.
