"A Library by Leah Buechley for the Processing programming environment. The Turtle library provides an implementation of a LOGO Turtle for Processing.

Turtle Geometry (see the fabulous book of the same name by Hal Abelson and Andrea diSessa) provides a different way of thinking about geometry. You draw by driving around a "turtle". Programs are written from the point of view of this turtle, which enables you to take an embodied approach to geometry.

LOGO, a turtle-based programming language, was developed by Seymour Papert and a group of collaboraters in the late 1960s. It was presented as a novel way to introduce children to computer programming and mathematics. LOGO and Turtle Geometry remain strongly associated with children and education, but are full of beautiful tools and ideas that adult artists and programmers can fruitfully explore.

A previous turtle library for Processing, Terrapin, is great, but somewhat limited in functionality. This library provides a more full-featured implementation, including "push" and "pop" functionality as well as high-resolution drawing capabilities.


Download Turtle version 1.0.0 (1) in .zip format."

"Thinking About Making – An examination of what we mean by making (MAKEing) these days. What gets made? Who makes? Why does making matter?"

[uninscusive covers of Make Magazine and composition of Google employment]

“Meet the new boss, same as the old boss”

"I'm really tired of setting up structures where we tell young women and young brown and black kids that they should aspire to be like rich white guys."

[RTd these back than, but never watched the video. Thanks, Sara for bringing it back up. ]

[Talk with some of the same content from Leah Buechley (and a lot of defensive comments from the crowd that Buechleya addresses well): ]

RADical Design for LEARNING -- Survey Seminar and Practical Action Laboratory
"Wtf is going on? Why are people limping out of 20 years of schooling without directed motivation, a solid internal compass, or a commitment to passionately pursuing their interests? Let's examine why in a cozy, edgy, authentic seminar where we balance theory with real-world action (praxis). We'll study the radical learning greats such as Illich, Papert, and Llewelyn, with focused readings and videos followed by discussion. Whenever possible we'll try to have the authors or their direct students available for Q&A&Q. And through hands-on labs and projects we'll design and enact experience-based transformations, like improvised music, consciousness altering strategies, electronics workshops etc. We can't wait to see you realize your wonderful ideas!"
