Tell students to experiment and break things so they maximize their learning opportunities and exposure to different aspects of Scratch to gain experience and build competency.

  • Kids who do exactly as you say will miss out on a lot of what Scratch has to offer because they won’t have played around, broken things, learned how to fix them, or experimented with assembling a variety of blocks.
  • Some kids follow your instructions exclusively because they want to succeed in class.
    • In so many classes students get in trouble for not following directions. This makes them scared to go off task or make their teacher upset.
