A programming adventure for Ruby beginners illustrated with cartoon foxes.
Tracy Mehoke (梅恬溪)'s insight:

This unconventional introduction to Ruby is a must-read if for nothing else than the lore and references to chunky bacon.  It also provides some description and examples of oft-encounted Ruby syntax and fun mnemonics for remembering and using such things.

Digital literacy has become one of the major issues facing educators in this early part of the 21st century. The need to develop students and teachers digital literacies has become increasingly accepted as fact and yet most teachers' and students' understanding of what exactly constitutes a digital literacy still seems to remain quite vague.
