A few neat sites/tools I’ve come across lately:
I know I’ve read about Scratch some time ago, but this BBC article highlights this free coding tool aimed at kids. Scratch, a tool developed at MIT, is a “free programming tool that allows anyone to create their own animated stories, video games and interactive artworks has been developed.” The video looks pretty impressive, but I haven’t got a chance to download and use the tool.
Somewhat related is the Zimmer Twins’ website. The website allows users to create animated movies, and the best are selected to be broadcast on Teletune. It’s really a neat process, and a clever tool. Here’s an example. Ahhhh … so much has changed since the days of BASIC.
