Special monthly episodes of NCompass Live! Join the NLC’s Technology Innovation Librarian, Amanda Sweet, as she guides us through the world of library-related Pretty Sweet Tech.

You may have heard that Scratch is a fun drag and drop programming interface to help kids learn how to code. Now Machine Learning for Kids has designed a fun and easy way to use Scratch to teach kids the basics of machine learning! In this session you will:

  • Learn a high-level overview of what machine learning is and how it is used.
  • See Machine Learning for Kids in action!
  • Get tips and tricks for how to setup and use this system for yourself.
Machine Learning for Kids has plenty of tutorials, projects, and support to get you started. This session will give you a sneak preview of this awesome tool.
