In this course, we will be creating an interactive collage using a coding block app called ScratchJr. Students will learn how fun it is to create scenes and characters while applying coding blocks to their creations.

ScratchJr Interactive Collage Hey, what's up? This is Troy with Pluralsight. Today we will be learning how to make an interactive collage with ScratchJr. What's ScratchJr you ask? Well, take a look. (video and music playing)
Tool Box Hey everybody, and welcome back to the toolbox. Let's go ahead and unpack this. Right now we're going to learn how to download the application called ScratchJr. We're going to look at the interface of ScratchJr and what makes it work and how we can interact with it. How to draw, how to create our own characters and backgrounds, and we'll also go over all the code blocks and learn how to make a script. And then lastly we'll go ahead and look at the highlights of what we learned so then we can go ahead and put it into practice. Now before you download ScratchJr, please make sure you have your parent's permission. ScratchJr is only available for the iPad. They are making an application for Android and they're also making one for the web, but for right now let's go ahead and take a look at how we can download ScratchJr for the iPad.
Demo Hey everybody and welcome to this demo. What we're going to do now is set up the entire project, get all the characters in order, and get their background ready. If we don't have the characters we need, well, I'm going to show you how we're going to create them, and then lastly what we're going to do is code everything and put it all together to make an amazing interactive collage. I hope you guys are ready to have some fun because it's about to heat up. See you guys in the next clip.
