Re: Brainstorms: NOW and NEXT

Bravo! Agree. Thanks for the PROJECT status for the Digital Badges effort. Seeking to craft a soft plan for four badges for LiveCode Newbies in the next 2 weeks. Then, perhaps a foggy blueprint for a dozen other LiveCode digital badges yet to come. They would help the grant application. In the weeks...

Re: PROJECT: Pluggers: The need for digital badges

The DIGITAL BADGES would need to be a .PNG art (not hard). These are just the eye candy / tokens. Good design always welcomed. Moreover, the bigger challenge. We'd have to think the Digital Badges for LiveCode through in terms of important milestones WORTHY for the bestowing of DIGITAL BADGEs to peo...

Re: Raspberry Pi as a LiveCode platform. It gotta happen.

First I heard any speculation that LC 8.0 may not run on a Pi. Of course we should be talking about the latest and greatest Pi versions. The idea of disk image with LiveCode and an EDU focused USB Drive might be GREAT. However, a disk image with LiveCode for EDU on the desktop, in a partition, and/o...

Re: Raspberry Pi as a LiveCode platform. It gotta happen.

Thanks for pointing out the Pi section of this forum. So, perhaps, this is getting a bit off topic, but... H posted: But I doubt that somebody of the community is allowed to provide a "full" installation (incl. Raspbian) as "disk image" for download. Then came a different view from LCMark. I favor t...

Re: Official Platform?

Just adding my voice to the desire to make Raspberry Pi an official platform for LiveCode. Would love to see LiveCode running on a Pi with version 8 in August 2016. For now, I've got a GRANT opportunity and would love to make the application with some confidence that these desires would come true, e...

Re: How to put LiveCode in the hands of more teachers/studen

LiveCode TEST making and taking Source Code app would be WONDERFUL. About a year ago I looked for a test writing app. I found something, but it was older and it wasn't open source. I gave it a whirl and it was an interesting approach. Worth the $50. But, I still don't have what I need and crave. A m...

Re: How to put LiveCode in the hands of more teachers/studen

I am asking for an EDU event with a LiveCode focus in Pittsburgh from any time from May 2017 to August 2017, if we get the grant. I think we are in a chicken and egg situation too. The grant could come if I get the support to do the event as a wrap-up event. So, yes. I would be HAPPY to work with th...

Re: Rookie Users: They need a Pathway Dean. Where to begin?

Hi, Not my students. My project is just hatching. No students for me for months, I hope. But, I see where this might be a huge burden and cause a lot of noise, especially if we give 400 kids a push and pull to use LiveCode. That goes to the root of the concern. How to scale upward and engage all the...

Re: EDU Grant Opportunity, Pittsburgh, Remake Learning N@

The management of the digital badges is going to be through a new site, not yet open, LRNG.org. There is a beta tutorial / tour I saw this week on the web. Boring stuff. Various ADMIN and SUPER USERS can manage the badge creation, the events, the network. Then when a USER (student) earns a digital b...

Re: How to put LiveCode in the hands of more teachers/studen

Spot on. If we are to be successful in persuading teacher to switch to LiveCode, we must provide them with a set of resources that will ease the transition from whatever they are using today, to LiveCode. Today, in the USA, much of the school setting is directed to teaching students how to do well o...

EDU Grant Opportunity, Pittsburgh, Remake Learning N@

Thanks Richard, Claire and others for your attention, discussions and help in planning and submission for a grant opportunity in Pittsburgh. I think we have a project that has great merit for my city, plus the overall educational mission of LiveCode in the USA. A nonprofit org, Sprout Fund dot org, ...

PROJECT: Pluggers: The need for digital badges

LiveCode & Digital Badges. Can we make some Digital Badges? I know I need them. Possible: Start with "Hello World" I guess. Have it work on different platforms. Perhaps we have a LiveCode Tire Kicking Badge where a user gets a list of 10 or 20 Made with LiveCode Apps. The users gets to test drive th...

Rookie Users: They need a Pathway Dean. Where to begin?

The LiveCode Community has so many resources that I fear the rookie user to LiveCode is going to FREEZE. Where do we send the rookies in the first 5 minutes? The A-B-Cs of LiveCode need to be easy, rewarding and fool-proof. Where do the rookies go in the first 20 minutes? Where do they go in the fir...

Raspberry Pi as a LiveCode platform. It gotta happen.

Hi All, The promise of LiveCode running on the Raspberry Pi is so exciting. But, sadly, I want to COUNT UPON the option of LiveCode on the Pi, not have it linger as a "promise" or a "hope." Three cheers for Faiser for his devotion to getting LiveCode ported to the Raspberry Pi so far, but that was a...
