ScratchEd was a site for teachers and educators of Scratch who wanted resources, advice, and ideas for teaching about Scratch.

History

Before ScratchEd was created, the "Educators" forum was used as a place for teachers to get ideas and advice for teaching about Scratch. The Scratch Team later thought that it would be much better if this forum was more centralized and concentrated on a separate website, which is now known as ScratchEd. An archive for reference of the old forum is still available here.

Resources

The ScratchEd website contained many resources for educators around the world teaching Scratch. Resources included:

  • Videos that teach certain lessons.
  • Videos and articles explaining how to set up a Scratch Workshop.
  • Stories by other members describing their experiences and giving advice.
  • Example Scratch projects to help educators.
  • Other resources.

Users did not have to be a member to access these resources, but non-members could not discuss the resources or ask other members for advice without joining the website.

Clicking on the "Discussions" tab took users to the ScratchEd forums. These contained the following categories:
