MIT's Scratch is one of the most beloved and respected programming languages for introducing youth to computer science and computational thinking.

What can we learn from Scratch when we think about helping people learn web development and web thinking? Is there a need for a web-oriented equivalent to Scratch? If so, what should it look like? Should Mozilla build it?

Audrey Watters spent a month interviewing educators and technologists about these and other questions surrounding web literacy and web building. Join us for an interactive chat around what she learned, and offer your feedback on next steps.
