  1. A mom just told me about this site and I haven't registered or worked on it myself. It is free and that works great for me. I am concerned about safety on line for him. Also, I am concerned about the content in a subject that I don't know anything about. Has anyone used this? Also, any other suggestions? I am open, but it must be reasonably priced.
  2. Hi All, I found a great series of tutorials which ds11 started going through recently. Within 2 days he has written two of his first Java programs. This included installing the latest Java Development Kit (JDK) and an Integrated Development Environment (IDE) which is Netbeans in this case, all free of course. Although I am a software engineer I sometimes find it best to let others teach him and this has definately worked well with these instructional videos. Once a student goes through the basics they are ready to start creating their first games in Java. So that's next and he is really excited.:D Anyway here is the link to the tutorials: http://www.youtube.com/user/TheJavaHub When you are ready to give it a go start here with Java for the Absolute Beginner: Its very well put together and a bit hard to believe its all free. I hope you enjoy them as we did. Derek

  9. I got my CBD catalog and there is something called KidCoder: Windows Programming. Has anyone tried it? Or anyone have other suggestions? I'm clueless. My dh knows a bit more but is busy bringing home the bacon. Any words of wisdom are appreciated!
  10. My son wants to learn how to build a dynamic website. He already knows how to program in Python and is quick at picking up code. I already have a hosting account he can log onto, and we're looking for self-teaching books or websites (not classes). Amazon has positive reviews of Head First Web Design and HTML, XHTML & CSS for Dummies. Would anyone have feedback on these books or other recommendations? Thanks in advance!
  11. What kind of options are out there for computer programming courses? My son is a rising 9th grader. He has no significant prior experience in programming. I saw mention of something offered by The Potter's School and we may go with that. But does anyone know of any other worthwhile resources?
  12. This is all new for me. I've found so many different versions of SCRATCH. Does anyone have any links with downloads they have successfully used? Many Thanks, Melody

  16. Hi I'm looking for an intro to computer programming course for my 9th grade dd. I don't want a Microsoft Office course, but one where dd will learn to write code in a logical order and create programs using a cs language. I wondered if anyone had any ideas of coures they've had good sucess with. I've gone online and looked at Potters School too, but at this point TPS is cost prohibitive b/c of the other online courses dd may take. Also, both dh & I are CS majors, so I *should* be able to teach or at least help dd when she needs it! LOL! Thanks SO much!
  17. My 15 yo has finished Computer Science Pure and Simple books 1 and 2. She would like to learn html. It will need to be self teaching, but she picks up the computer pretty easily. Thanks, Noelle
  18. I am currently teaching a class at our local homeschool co op in Programming with Alice and I just wanted to recommend this as a fun entry level programming course. I have 15 girls and boys from 7th -12th grade and they are all enjoying it and doing well. One of my students went as far as to write a lens on Squidoo explaining about the language and she shows examples of what can be produced - www.squidoo.com/alice-programming. It is very accessible to modern kids as it is all drop-down menus and graphic based - no learning loads of commands. I use the text book my student talks about. It comes with a CD with the language on it - but that version is buggy, so be sure to download the version found online (it is free) Meryl
  19. This son was raised with tv/vcr mounted in bedroom and had gamecubes and gameboys for his entertainment for many years. (this was prior to me becoming his mommy) Now he rarely plays because I limit it. But, knowing that this is a hot buttom for him and planning on homeschooling him... Are there any subjects/curriculum/programs that you think are worthwhile to use in teaching him? I have Bible, Language/Writing and History selected for him... I also have some basic math to get us through until next year. Like I mention, I am just wondering if I can slip some video type game into the mix that isn't fluff... or something that gives him joy... I'm reeling him in pretty close and it's going to be quite an adjustment. Any software or something that you really find worthwhile?? Thanks, Bee PS Looks like I need something for "science" (he hasn't done much science at all in school so far this year!)
  20. In my continuing search for ways to jazz up my son's math curriculum, I recently hit upon the idea of having him learn to do some programming. My husband immediately suggested LOGO and found a few places from which we can download the actual language for free. The problem is that I really want some kind of guide, lesson plans, curriuclum to use. Otherwise, I suspect my son will muck around with it for a few weeks and then walk away. I found a couple of things in the Rainbow Resources catalogue, but they require a specific package (MicroWorlds, which is based on LOGO), and the software costs $100. My husband ran into the same wall looking for things online: LOGO is out there to be downloaded, but all of the reasonably-priced curricula require a specific version that costs right around $100 to purchase. We're still looking around, but I was hoping some of you brilliant folks here might be able to steer us toward something workable? Thanks!
