Free Computing Curriculum Resource - Vector Scratch Blocks
Haven't been posting much on the forums of late, but hopefully that will change this year. In the mean time I have put together some resources that some of you might find useful.
As the software of choice currently to teach the new Computing Curriculum is Scratch, I wanted to make some resources that could be used to help teach it.
After seeing these hands-on blocks I thought it would be great if anyone could make their own. So I set about creating some vector versions of the standard Scratch blocks that could be scaled to any size required. As I created them I also thought how useful it would be if Teachers could use them in other ways, for example, displays, PowerPoints and on Interactive Whiteboards.
With this in mine the Scratch Block Package currently contains 66 blocks in the following formats:
- SVG – Scalable Vector Graphics.
- EMF – Vectors for use in Microsoft Office products.
- PNG – High resolution raster images with transparency.
- SMART Gallery Package – Vectors for use with SMART Notebook.
The package can be downloaded from my online portfolio at Vector Scratch Blocks | Graphic Gremlin
