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.
