Dear Andrè,
I'm nearly in the same situation like You (I used in the past (Basic, 
Visual Basic, Pascal – I’m just a 50 y old teacher who started with 
computer in the 80’) with the difference that I'am an experienced User 
of Hypercardt - the anchestor of MetaCard and Revolution - which only 
exists for MacOS. But now, with platform-independent MetaCard and/or 
Revolution (which are nearly the ssame)  I have a tool which fits 
better to our school's situation (we have a MacOS computer lab and a 
Windows computer lab). My pupils are beginners in programming, about 16 
years old, and there is absolutely no book about MetaCard or Revolution 
for them , even not an English one (I need one in German). For 
Hypercard, , there were enough good books (also in German language), 
but Hypercard is to much different.
What to do ?
During  the last  three months I began myself to make a suitable book 
(or booklet) for learning programming (rather than 
multimedia-authoring) with MetaCard and Revolution, which will be used 
as a book for beginners or pupils.
Like You I would like to have additionally an ‘in-depth-tutorial’ to 
avoid many experiments, but there is nothing on the market.
But nevertheless I am interested in what You are doing with Your pupils 
What would You expect from school-book for beginners ?
I would be glad to hear from You something about working with 
Metacard/Revolution in school.
