Yesterday, we have a conference named "ALAN-K Project Workshop" for discussing Squeak's curriculum with teachers and developers in Kyoto. Actually, we didn't have enough time to discuss, but it was good opportunity to see how to teach in primary school to high school. What I was most interested in were works by a couple of high school students. In instance, they were making about human powered air plain simulation, and ecosystem simulation; in the simulations, a user could alter each parameter to see what was happen. Other surprised thing was the authors of these works were pretty girls, not nerds wearing glasses. I felt envy the teachers!
