Saluti dall'MIT

stamattina ho scritto a Mitchel Resnick, il direttore del gruppo dell'MIT che ha inventato Scratch, e a Natalie Risk, che lavora nel suo gruppo. Mitchel ha gentilmente risposto subito per augurarci buona fortuna. Ecco le mail:


Dear Mitchel and Natalie,

my name is Ilaria Lombardi and I work as a researcher at the Computer Science Department - University of Turin (Italy). I am organizing two courses about computational thinking and coding for primary and secondary school teachers in my town (Piossasco) and I will use Scratch to explain how to play with computer programming.

On behalf of all the teachers and children from Piossasco that will enjoy coding with Scratch, I would like to thank you and all the Scratch Group for your inspiring work.

Best regards,



Thanks for your message — and for supporting Scratch in Italy! 

Good luck with your courses!
