Some visual scripting languages I want to investigate for early learning..
- http://research.microsoft.com/projects/boku/ – can’t try this but will look at it
I think what I’ll do is write a simple game (sliding block puzzle or towers of hanoi) in each of the systems and see which I think is easiest… I think the problems that kids should be solving should be ‘scientific’ or ‘mathematicaI’ or programm’y.
But that’s my opinion – the kids just want to get from zero to Grand Theft Auto or Halo in 2 easy steps! But I can only see so many pre-animated guys or gals with guns running and shooting badly in some 3D scripting world.
