LC Learning Resource for Kids

Monte started an interesting discussion on the mailing list that seemed a good candidate for furthering here where conversations are less ephemeral:
http://lists.runrev.com/pipermail/use-l ... 21358.html

With learning LiveCode, today we have almost the opposite problem of many years ago, in which rather than having too few learning resources we have a great many of them, and they're currently in many different locations (Dictionary, User Guide, Lessons, etc.). The team is migrating most of those so they'll eventually be accessible from a single location, but it still leaves us with one issue: those resources are designed for adult learners.

What would be needed to craft an on-boarding experience for younger minds?

Hi, Richard

I'm thinking an easy to use, kid friendly area might be best. Perhaps a "Livecode for Kids" page on Facebook. I could get it up and running this week.

Definitely a great start. "Make it so, Number One."

One thing that has come up in conversations about learning LiveCode is that value of templates and other pre-scripted objects.

What sorts of templates/components might be especially useful for students?
