Scratch, mobile phones and Podmo

South Oz E-learning: Explore the potential

Scratch is a new programming language that makes it easy to create your own interactive stories, animations, games, music, and art -- and share your creations on the web.

Scratch is designed to enhance the technological fluency of young people, helping them learn to express themselves creatively with new technologies. As they create Scratch projects, young people learn important mathematical and computational ideas, and they gain a deeper understanding of the process of design.

I downloaded it and had a quick play. Certainly has potential. Putting this into the context of my recent posts, I wonder what this would look like if the playing could happen on mobile phones and the sharing via the Podmo network?
