Hi

I've just “found” scratch. It looks good as an aid to programming and ICT in classes.

My involvement was, as the IT person in our school, was “its not working”.

Having not seen it before I guessed that “scratch.mit.edu” was a good and proper website. On my PC it worked fine but not on the Students. After a little investigation I surmised that it was being blocked by our Internet filter. I “allowed” scratch.mit.edu and it began to work.

We use Lightspeed as our Internet filter and they are a US company. I just wondered if anyone knew what “rule” Lightspeed choose to block scratch.mit.edu?

Lightspeed are not very good at support hence me asking here.

1. Yeah scratch is a good tool to use
2. I don't why scratch was blocked but I have a theory.

Scratch has a lot of actually good games like FIFA and FNAF and sometimes you'll see people with no interest in programming using the games. Filters may block the word game automatically.

At my school, it's blocked on our iPads, but it works fine when I'm using a computer there.

It might've been blocked because it contains games? IDK
