Brainwashing teachers

Post by richmond62 » Mon Nov 26, 2018 8:43 am

Unfortunately this, like most things, involves an initial capital outlay.

Imagine (and I will admit that I am in no way qualified to assess its financial thing) . . .

A dedicated house in the country with bedrooms, a kitchen, a laundry, space for socialising,
AND several "classrooms" equipped with computers and data projectors, and staff to do
the day-to-day, mundane stuff (cooking, cleaning, and so on).

Week-long, live-in, Intro To LiveCode courses taught by and for teachers,
specifically targetted to address the curricular needs of whichever country/educational authority those teachers come from.

It would probably NOT be necessary to set up a specific house for Livecode to run 24/7,
as I am sure that there are plenty of places set up for this type of thing in a large number
of countries that can be rented for a set period.

Unfortunately there is unlikely to be many takers unless teachers perceive some obvious
benefit in going away for a week of study during their holidays. Probably this is really only
possible with educational authority backing, both in terms of "stamps of approval" and in
terms of money.

Certainly, over here in Bulgaria (admittedly Bulgaria is an extremely marginal case),
teachers will not even get off their bottoms to attend a FREE one-day "Intro to LC"
because there is neither incentive nor compulsion.

"use 2 or more programming languages, at least one of which is textual, to solve a variety of computational problems; make appropriate use of data structures [for example, lists, tables or arrays]; design and develop modular programs that use procedures or functions"

Of course, whether LiveCode is textual qua textual is a bit of a moot point.
