|10:14 am - Programming languages in schools|
I have just written a post on the new computing curriculum for schools. People might be interested in the list of suggested programming languages. This is not mandated, but I think it is interesting. It is found on page 13.
Every student should have repeated opportunities to design, write, run and debug an executable program. What an executable program means can range widely depending on the level of the student and the amount of time available. The following are included in programming:
- Small domain-specific languages, such as instructions to a simple robot, or Logo-style turtle.
- Visual languages such as Scratch BYOB or Kodu.
- Text-based languages, such as C#, C++, Java, Pascal, PHP, Python, Visual Basic, and so on.
- Spreadsheet formulae

This is COMPLETELY IRRELEVANT but I wondered if you might be interested in these Misfits vids
, as recommended/introduced by heyiya
? I didn't persevere past the first ep of Misfits
, so I haven't looked at the vids, but I always like your posts about it and the vids sounded like they might be up your street...
Oh, thank you, I will look at those tonight when I get back from work. I hope you are having a good time in Australia :-)
Yes they were great. I wonder if you might enjoy them in their own right. They are both about Alisha, who has sex-appeal-power, which is a kind of curse. I think both vids show how complex her portrayal was in the show.
