The personal learning network for educators
Itch provides Scratch in a safe, online learning environment with video lessons for your students.
Privacy is important and with Itch you can control access to sharing projects to just your students, your school or all Itch users. You have a safe and secure area to manage how your students work and collaborate on their creations.
We provide integrated video lessons. Students can follow along with videos and directions all in the same window. Our sample lessons guide students with no programming background through core concepts to a level where they can design and create projects more on their own.
Our sample lessons can be used from late elementary level all the way through early high school and cover a broad area of computer science curriculum standards. You can also create your own lessons and projects if you need more activities at a specific level.
Server down again! Oh no.. Now what will you do? With our production-quality scratch server we guarantee uptime for Itch. We have been running hundreds of thousands of users globally on our production Learning Management System for several years with zero downtime.
Want to learn more techniques and develop ideas for your class and coding? We have regular scheduled webinars that you will be invited to once you sign up for Itch. We cover all sorts of topics ranging from how to get and keep students engaged in coding activities to collaborating with other teachers with resources and curriculum.
