Abstract

In this work, a mobile application developed on the Scratch programming language is described. Purpose of the application is to develop programming skills and computational thinking abilities of the students from secondary schools. The mobile application has been developed to solve two problems related to teaching Scratch programming language. The first problem related to educational aspects of the Scratch programming commonly used in secondary schools. The second problem is that Scratch does not have mobile applications for its learning.
