The two software programs that will be discussed within this workshop are Alice and Scratch. Alice is a program that was developed by Carnegie Mellon for the purpose of teaching the basics of programming to students using a 3D environment. This program is a great tool for animating story telling. Scratch is a program that was created by MIT for the purpose of teaching children, ages 8 and up, to develop 21st century learning skills. With this tool, students will learn important mathematical and computational skills, as well as learn to think creatively, reason systematically, and work collaboratively.

This workshop will teach you basic instructions for utilizing the software as well as provide you with suggestions for incorporating these programs into your lesson plan. Both Alice and Scratch are free to download and use.
