Scratch Teacher Accounts – Thanks, @scratch !

JV Jackrabbits ❤ ❤ ❤ the new Scratch Teacher Accounts!

ScratchTeacherAccountCaptureWith a Scratch Teacher Account students no longer need email addresses in order to have their own Scratch accounts. Saving, sharing, and uploading of projects to the class Scratch Studios is so easy now!

We really enjoyed alpha-testing a Scratch Teacher Account last spring.  Our students found that saving, sharing, and adding their best projects to our Introduction to Scratch Studio, as well as to our Google CS First Storytelling and Music & Sound  Scratch Studios, was very simple.  We saved some time at the end of each meeting for students to present a Studio project and answer questions about how (and why) it was coded.  This sharing became the highlight of the day!

Student Presentation

Lots of fun and learning for all.  Thanks, Scratch Team!
