Teaching Smalltalk - Inspiring a new generation of Programmers

Smalltalk has been used to teach children how to program since its very conception.

It has a range of useful and powerful teaching environments built in it - Scratch and EToys being two of the best known.

With a surge in interest in teaching our children how to program rather than just be office workers or consumers of information we are going to explore the different ways we can get people interested in learning Smalltalk be they school children or professional programmers.

As always everyone is welcome whatever your level of Smalltalk experience.

    Great turnout with interesting ideas on computing in education with links back to Smalltalk. Really liked the idea of sharing "Smalltalk Moments"

    Spotted this on the way home...From The New York Times:

    The Computer Code for Parental Feelings of Inadequacy

    That steady stream of articles deeming coding “the new lingua franca” and coding education the holy grail for kids flowing by on social media and dropping into your in-box makes coding the hot new parent guilt trip.
