An off-line comment helped me realize that this post read as a critique of the simulation game. It wasn't meant to be and I've revised it so that my intent is more clear. As the questions that exploded from the Herons indicate, any simulation of any duration is a powerful tool that helps students engage in and care about their learning. The scope of this simulation was necessarily limited - I wanted to reflect upon the Heron's ability to work around and beyond limitations (even ones I was trying to set in place!)

Computer Science and Coding

  • Scratch
  • Squeek
    This is a fun language and makes good games. You need to download it to your computer so you need to check with your parents.
  • Python Tutorial
    You need to read this tutorial -- but you'll create a program that can talk to you (or at least seem to.)
  • Logo Simulator
    This is the Logo we use in math.
  • Kahn Academy Java Script Tutorial
    This is a syntax based language so it's more a little trickier that Scratch. But this is a great way to learn it with a video that you can pause and fiddle with.
