On our third day of the Fairfax Computer Camp, we started out Small Basic for a second day and I immediately noticed that the enthusiasm had waned a bit. I was also noticing that Small Basic was still a bit advanced for these incoming 4th graders who were all still learning their way around the computer keyboard. We did a bit with graphics and animation but that wasn’t as fun as the Turtle or Kodu from the first day for the kids. At that point the kids were getting a bit antsy so I let them out into my back yard for a snack break. After about 15 minutes I made an executive decision and decided to go back to Kodu and really help them create amazing games and have fun – what all of them really wanted to do. I walked out back chanting Kodu…Kodu…Kodu and they got the picture and raced back inside to be in front of their computers. I asked them all if they would rather do Kodu or Small Basic and all of them said Kodu. The kids immediately opened their games from Monday and started working on them and refining them. I spent the rest of the day running around answering their individual questions and enabling them to experiment, create, test, and design their first computer games. They are all making great strides and learning a whole new way of interacting with a computer. They are starting to try out each other’s games and then refining them based on the feedback they are getting from the interactions.
