4 (More) Tools for Teaching Kids to Code
"We wrote a story earlier this fall with 4 suggestions for some of our favorite programming tools aimed at kids. And that list is worth repeating: the graphical programming language Scratch, the programmable robotics of Lego Mindstorms, the 3D programming environment Alice, and the Android App Inventor.

But in the spirit of National Computer Education Week and the hopes that we can encourage more kids not just to use technology but to build technology, here's a list of 4 more: Kodu, Small Basic, Arduino, and Squeak"

Experience: I have Alice In Wonderland syndrome | Health and wellbeing | Life and Health
"symptoms just got worse. Everything was now distorted, all the time. Walking down the road, parked cars appeared the size of Corgi models, while I'd feel disproportionately tall. At work, my chair seemed enormous, while I seemed to have shrunk."

"teachers love Alice...more likely to adopt it...than Python. Why?...Alice is about storytelling, and we teach Python for media computation. Storytelling...bigger motivator...more fundamental driver of human behavior, than manipulating media."
