I supported the local junior school’s Scratch Club to enter the Y Factor competition run in association with the 2009 Handheld Learning Festival. The Learners Y Factor showcases the innovation and ingenuity being demonstrated amongst young learners using mobile, gaming, social media or other popular technologies in their learning.
The Scratch Club was a great example of this – it’s run by four 10 year olds who love programming with Scratch. It was started by them, and they’ve had to campaign to get Scratch on the school computers, and to find an adult to supervise them while they run the club. This is the introduction they put together for the Y Factor (they reached the national finals and each one a wii).
