Scratch for primary school teachers

These are some guides that I've created for an introduction to programming for teachers in local primary schools. These are based on the older versions of Scratch programming language.

Updated materials are available from the following link:

Programming in Scratch on Ubuntu Linux

Please note that these are intended for use by teachers or adults wanting to learn programming and not for direct use with the pupils. The quiz game is designed to fit in a lot of features into a small amount of programming time which is going to be too fast a pace for primary school children. They may be useful for older children looking for a quick course in Scratch.
