Mario Gómez Martínez's curator insight, April 29, 3:45 AM

This book aims at breaking the entry barriers for kids, both boys and girls, to the programming universe. The language chose is ruby, which has one of the most natural grammars I have seen so far in a programming language. Very often, resources to teach/learn programming are written by men, and the contexts are mostly boyish. This book is written by a woman, with a girl as the main character, but is not for girls, or so the author claims. I will review the book after receiving it in Agust 2014

Makedo makes it easy to create stuff, associate to Arduino, it could be a great starter point to built whatever a kid wants!

Scratch began with education in mind. ScratchEd was nearly simultaneous. Scratch is the coding site...ScratchEd gives educators additional tools to use it.

Mel Wruck's curator insight, June 13, 2013 12:45 AM

Alice is an introduction to object-orientated programming that makes coding appealing to young people. Students can test the programs while they create them and watch the sprites change as they manipulate the blocks statements. This tool is recommend for children from 8 years of age. A number of worlds can be created in Alice to incorporate mathematics. Two that I have found to be great examples are Ice Cream Functions and Toy Story discounts. Also provides an opportuniny for introducting the concept of 3D shapes.
