Personal Scratch Pages

Creating Your Page

In order to get started with Scratch, the visual programming language that you will use for the Unit 2 project, you will need to do the following:

  1. Save a bookmark for http://scratch.mit.edu/ in your browser for easy access
  2. Click “Join Scratch” and create a Scratch account so that you can save your projects in the cloud, and access all of the features Scratch has to offer.
  3. In a shared space provided to you by your teacher, post a link to your public Scratch page. You do NOT have to make all of your projects public, however, your public page will showcase those that you share.

When you have posted your link, spend some time exploring the user interface and with programming. There are some excellent beginner tutorials under the Help tab at the top of the page if you’d like to get started right away. Experiment with the different features available to you now, but don’t worry! We will explore all of the features necessary to create a great project in detail throughout the remainder of this unit.
