Building a smarter computing culture in Fargo, ND
As I’ve been working on my book within Etoys, I’ve also been watching and reading whatever I can on scripting within Etoys. Throughout the process, I came across the two following videos. The first one is of a student who has created a tutorial of what seems to be a project that he is completing in school. (I’m wondering if it is a student from an XO deployment in Alabama.) The next one is of an adult who is working with Etoys, working with the scripts.
When you compare the two videos, you will notice how the young student seems to have mastered this Etoys application, adding scripts to his objects with ease, while the adult seems to be struggling, encountering roadblock after roadblock. Even though the young student probably has been using Etoys longer than the adult and seems to be prepared for this activity, I think the lesson learned here is all about attitude.
