WeScratch are online workshops for everyone who wants to learn how to create projects in Scratch in an inclusive, collaborative, and playful online environment.
While many online learning experiences follow the transmissive approach typical of video lessons and webinars, the WeScratch experience is designed as a hands-on, creative workshop where participants spend most of their time making projects while they share ideas with peers.
WeScratch provides a model for how to design online learning environments to be more inclusive, playful, and collaborative. Educators from all over the world have participated in our workshops. Some of them are already using strategies from WeScratch to design engaging online learning experiences for their students.
Although WeScratch workshops are designed to support learning to code, we see the wider potential for applying this approach to other learning environments in order to broaden participation, build connection, and expand creative expression—especially online.
