Great for teachers!
I downloaded this to help my children learn Scratch in the primary classroom. They worked in pairs - one on the iPad, one on the laptop or Macbook. They took it in turns and worked well together, creating their maze. None of them had used Scratch before and managed in one session to create their maze. They are now keen to use the programme to explore for themselves. Great for the non specialist teacher - just watch them fly!
More like this please.
I have used this in the classroom as an introduction to Scratch. Working in groups, the year 6 children could use the iPad tutorial to help them make a game with Scratch for the first time. They have now moved on to planning and executing their own maze game armed with the knowledge gleaned from Scratch maze- thank you.
It just gives you a toroidal when I wanted the actual app really disappointed in it I really hope he creates a different one to this and it actually has the programming abilities rather than just the info on how to use it. It also wants you to download it to a computer as well as your apple device but not every one has a computer I do but I want it so I can just run it off my apple device.
