We’ve been a bit quiet since last summer, so here’s a quick update for you. The Flip team are hard at work on the initial version of the Flip visual programming language, and preparing for our return to a local high school with the software in June 2010.  We’ll also be looking to publish some of the findings from our studies in various forums - more on that at a later date.

In the meantime, we’ve added a new paper to the Publications section. It’s called ‘Language-based Support for Computational Thinking’, written by Howland, Good and Nicholson and presented by Katy Howland at last year’s VL/HCC conference in Oregon. The paper “explores the potential for simplified programming languages to support the development of computational thinking skills in non-programmers.” Enjoy!
