[REBOL] Rebol and kiddies

From: pavone:saunalahti:fi at: 7-Nov-2000 9:42

I am interested in bringing some simple programming environment for kids. A cheap alternative would be to take Rebol/Core and substitute a subset of reserved words by different ones and then possibly add something Logo -like graphical interaction by Rebol/Wiew. For youngest children a difficulty is programming in a foreign language (English). There have been variants of Logo translated to various languages (e.g. Sampo in Finnish) but these have not been migrated to more recent Windows versions. There are several options: a) reimplement Logo as it is + 'genre' exists (manuals etc. are ready) b) translate a subset of Rebol as it is - new 'genre' needed + Rebol suits to long-term experimentation + easier than a) c) translate an existing Java environment + many available (soon) Has anybody done something like this already? Suggestions, comments?
