Creative Collaboration Online
Using the Scratch online community as a context, we have been studying how young people engage in creative collaboration, leadership roles, civic engagement, and identity expression and exploration. Scratch is a programming language and an online community where young people can create and share their own interactive stories, games, and animations. As they create and share projects, young people learn to think creatively, reason systematically, and work collaboratively. Scratch is a project from the Lifelong Kindergarten group at the MIT Media Lab.
