This past week in One Laptop Per Child we have continued to work on our projects for our Barbados service trip! We all have figured out the direction we are going with our projects, and what we want to showcase about each continent. I have Antarctica, and I am making it interactive while teaching the kids about the different countries that have ownership of the unique continent. I have learned a lot about Scratch recently since we are using the old version. The new and the old version of Scratch differ in many little ways. I had gotten used to the new version over the past couple weeks and know where everything is new again with the old version!
These projects have been a really good learning experience because while making this I have had to think about what appeals to children and what is easy for them to understand. I’ve definitely started to step outside my comfort zone with this project, but I’ve really enjoyed it I can’t wait to actually show the kids my project!
