This course and Multimedia Skills were superseded by a new course,
Explorations, begun in the 2003-2004 School
Exploring Programming is a one semester course offered at the Middle
School of the American School in Japan. Students will begin with a very basic introduction to two versions of
Logo, Squeak, and Microsoft
Visual Basic or Visual Basic for Applications® and then propose
and plan projects in one of the languages.
The primary goal is to explore programming. Students are expected to pursue topics that
interest them and show substantial progress toward their goal. Students will complete self-assessments in which they propose their grade
for the course and support it with evidence of their progress and work.
It's not what you know at the end of the course that counts; it's how much
Even with computers, you have
to plan your projects with somebody!
