BITWISE: Information Technology Literacy for Elementary, Grade 1 – 6 (Teacher & Student Edition)

Computers are machines that help people with information. They help us find information, process it, and use it in meaningful ways. Perhaps most important of all, computers help us create new information, new ways of expressing our creativity and our imagination.

This book will guide you through Scratch, a programming language created by the Lifelong Kindergarten Group at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology. Scratch allows you to create your own art, storybooks, MTVs, and games. It enables you to mix text, graphics, sound, and animation. And it is very easy to learn! The lessons in this book have been updated to make use of Scratch 1.3.1, released in November 2008. For even more fun and learning, we included more hands-on activities and exercises.

We hope that this experience with Scratch will help you nurture your imagination. We hope that you discover new ideas and share them with the rest of the world. We also hope that this process will be fun and fulfilling.

As a final note, we would like to thank Mr. Alfred Thompson for suggesting Scratch as a platform. We would also like to thank Reggie Rodrigo and Bienvenido A. Tan, Jr. for their constant support.
