On the Scratch Team we design for a global learning community that come from different cultures and backgrounds, speak different languages, and have widely varying interests. In this workshop we will share our experiences designing for a global community as well as many of the challenges we face. Participants will engage in small groups to share their own experiences and brainstorm ways to address the various challenges that face these global communities. We will conclude by sharing the designs and ideas from each group and inviting participants to continue the dialogue with us after the conference.
