Scratch is a block-based programming language, creative platform, and online community where users create and share games, stories, animations, and other projects. Scratch can also be used to program hardware, and is the basis for many graphical programming languages used to power robotic and electronic toys. Millions of kids the world over use Scratch to create, share and learn.
As a Learning Designer on the Scratch team, my work is a combination of learning design and visual design. Projects I've contributed to range from creating learning experiences for the new Scratch 3.0 Tutorials Library, to organizing play-testing events with local schools and informal learning spaces, which inform the design of learning content as well as UX and UI design. Look out for our exciting Hour of Code activities, launching this November.
