Scratch That Coding Itch with Ryan Swanstrom – WHS 242

Scratch 3.0 was released in January 2019 and includes a number of great new features including the ability to create and play projects on a tablet.

Ryan Swanstrom joins me today to discuss Scratch 3.0 and how homeschoolers can use it to teach their kids how to code, for free!

Ryan is a homeschool dad, computer programmer, and data scientist who helps homeschool parents integrate programming and technology into their curriculum with online courses and a weekly/monthly newsletter. He and his wife homeschool their 5 children in South Dakota, USA.
