I tweeted a request for computer programming tutorial recommendations (for Jane), and a number of useful suggestions came pouring in via Twitter and Facebook. We’ve not had time to investigate them yet—we are busy enjoying a grandparent visit for a couple of days—but I thought I’d post the list here for others who may be interested.
Alice (object-oriented programming, creating animations, video games)
Lynda (wide range of tutorials)
Snake Wrangling for Kids (learning to program in Python)
Scratch (via MIT—several friends recommended this)
Your suggestions are welcome too!
