Scratch http://scratch.mit.edu/ is an open-source visual programming language developed at the MIT media lab that is well suited to K-12 students. It is an excellent tool for creating interactive video games, but how do we utilize Scratch in our content areas? This project represents a technological and field-based experience where pre-service teachers make sense of their content knowledge through the development, implementation and assessment of the instructional games.
