>Pyonkee is a real visual-programming environment for iPad. It is based on Scratch from the MIT Media Lab.
>Projects made for Scratch are compatible with Pyonkee.
looks interesting. I *think* pyonkee is based on Scratch 1.4?

Physical Computing With Scratch | Raspberry Pi Projects
>The version of Scratch included with the Raspberry Pi has a number of unique features; one of the most useful is its ability to communicate with the GPIO pins (General Purpose Input Output). These pins allow you to connect your Raspberry Pi to a range of devices, from lights and motors to buttons and sensors. The original Raspberry Pi had a 26-pin header and newer models (B+, Pi 2, Pi 3, etc) have a 40-pin header, but this workshop will work with any model.

I’ve generally failed with any raspberry pi stuff that involves extra hardware beyond a camera this might help.

Simple Scratch intruder alarm « Blog My Wiki!
> uses any old Raspberry Pi with Raspbian and some parts you’d find in a CamJam EduKit or similar: an LED, a resistor, a push-button switch, a buzzer and a Passive Infra Red (PIR) movement sensor wired up

Looks like it might be a nice we project for school.

Questioning Coding | Oliver Quinlan
A lot of the children I was working with were quite familiar with Scratch, when I saw them present on what they had been doing I realised that some of them were far more familiar with it than I was. They started with the default project in Scratch, which consists of a cartoon cat stood in the middle of the screen. I asked them if they could make the cat run around, and they did so quite easily. Next I asked if they could create a dog character, which they also did quite easily, and here it got interesting…

Literacy from Scratch
Literacy from Scratch” is a response to the United Kingdom (UK) government’s initiative to develop computer programming skills in both the Primary phase of education (pupils aged 5 to 11) and the Secondary phase (aged 11 to 18).

Explore the website to find out how postgraduate students from London and Prague and schools in the UK and the Czech Republic have risen to this challenge.

The site also contains a variety of pupil work using IT in cross-curricular sessions in the UK and other countries, including Stories for Children, and the STAR (Science Through Arts) project.
