Educational Stack

Hi All,

I created this stack in September 2006.
Hope that some scripts could be useful
for educators.

Thank you for sharing!

I found quite useful and interesting things in your educational stack and will apply them in my work.
As now I`m teaching about the understanding of the basic coding techniques to children of 8-10 years.

Good work, Alejandro. Have you considered uploading this to revOnline?

Hi All,

Many thanks for your compliments! :oops:
The person that originally requested this stack
never answered my requests for feedback, so
it's surprising for me, that this could be useful
for many of you.

Richard, I could upload it to RevOnline.
Where could I find a Tutorial that explains,
step by step, How to do it.?

Thanks in advance!

Al

Thanks a lot, Richard! :-D

The revOnline upload process is as simple as you describe. Later, I will upload other stacks posted by myself in the forums and mail lists.

This is the download link: http://livecodeshare.runrev.com/stack/8 ... -Education
and this is the stack's description:

This program was created to fulfill a request from this 2006 mail list thread:
https://www.mail-archive.com/use-revolu ... 80852.html

This is the original specification. This stack implements some, but not all, of these features

"This program record a child's vocal response to letters (and eventually numbers, phonemes, words) on a screen. (The program will not itself record sound).

The idea is that the child would work with a teacher alongside him or her at the computer. At the start of the session, the teacher would press the space-bar and a letter would be displayed on the screen.

After the child's vocal response, the teacher would press ">" to record a correct response or "<" to record an incorrect response.

Either of these actions, or pressing the space-bar (to record no response or some other event, perhaps) would bring the next character to the screen.

I would be interested in how many correct and incorrect responses the child made in a certain length of time, so the program could time itself from the first space-bar press to 30 seconds or 60 seconds, or whatever, and then go to e.g. an admin screen.

Probably best if it didn't just quit entirely. The time and numbers of corrects and incorrects would be saved to file (database?) for further use.

Specification

1. Pressing the space-bar (could be any key, but seems most appropriate) will display a pseudo-random character on the screen.

2. The characters displayed will be pseudo-randomly selected from a readily changed array of available characters.

3. In the admin section it will be possible to choose e.g. letters a,b,c,d and e as the ones from which the displayed characters will be selected. Changing the possible letters to q,w,e,r and t or any others should be easy to do in the admin section.

4. In the admin section it will be possible to change the font, size and color of the displayed letters (for any one sessions the font etc... would be the same for all letters).

5. The letters will stay on the screen until changed by the next key press.

6. In the admin section it will be possible to choose a time (in seconds) from the first space-bar press during which letters can be presented on the screen. After the chosen time has elapsed, the session will end.

7. The program will record the total number of letters displayed.

8. Pressing < at any time will record a "wrong" response and pressing at any time will record a "right" response. To increase fluency, pressing either of these or the space-bar will bring the next (pseudo-random) character on to the screen.

9. The total number of corrects and incorrects per session will be recorded."

I just found this 9 pages RTF document (in my gmail archive) where I explain to a LiveCode developer named Banty Mom, a few of the scripts used in this stack.

By the way, I found the original email exchange with Tony, the teacher who requested this stack, but Tony do not answered my last email and he never posted again in the forum or the mail list... I hope that he is still alive and well. :-o
