Misconception: Students have trouble understanding the difference between the “glide” and “go to” blocks in Scratch.

  • The glide block, "glide _ secs to x: _ y: _", specifies a duration for how long it will take the sprite to move to the stated point.
  • The go to block, "go to x: _ y: _", instantly moves the sprite to the specified point.
  • This can be especially difficult for students whose first language is not English.
