Since many week, we are looking on how to convert Scratch projets to Android Apps.
May be someone in the global coder Dojo community know how to solve this problem.
Hope to read you soon
Even if it exists a converting box :
You will have to adapt your program with the android sensors so it will be more profitable to learn to use appinventor instead : http://appinventor.mit.edu/
Yea, appinventor seems to be the best tool to use to start creating apps. They have good tutorials to help get you started...http://appinventor.mit.edu/explore/ai2/beginner-videos.html
There is also a new programming environment from Code.org called App Lab (for simple apps) https://code.org/educate/applab
Hey Danielle, how are you getting on with moving on from Scratch to Android apps?
If you are looking for a way for youths to move on from scratch to another language, check out greenfoot.org. It works as a bridge between Scratch and Java.
At Gent Dojo in Belgium, they have children as young as 10 practicing Java with it!
@Danielle-AKINI no problem, happy to help
as app inventor is very event driven. A 'black box' conversion will generally not be sucessful.
An alternative approach is to teach an Introduction to app inventor - basically follow the tutorials and then set a challange for ninjas jumping ahead to convert a scratch project and then have them explain to everyone else what they did.
That would be a very interesting thing, many ninjas asked me if was possible to use their games into smartphones... AppInventor is great but it's in english... Italians learn english very slowly So ninjas don't understand the AppInventor's blocks... Does anyone know if there is also an italian program like it to make app? Or if there's some way to transform a Scratch or SNAP project into an app? Thanks very much!
to be honest. This is probably a MIT question. App Inventor is derived from 'blocky', and its the translation of the block titles is the issue. I will ask a question in the App Inventor forums and update here with answer.
