I have been teaching CS/programming off and on since 1983.  I was a math teacher (and still am) who got bit by the programming bug and figured the kids should feel my pain.  I now teach at a private Catholic school in western Montana.  The private school atmosphere lets me teach what I think is necessary and fun in computers without all the public school BS.

    This came in my email this a.m. asking for a link on our website. I thought of you – you may already know about this site but if not. . .
    “After hearing stories from several colleagues and students, I saw the need for a truly effective game design education resource on the web. As a result, I designed http://www.computergamedesign.org to include a comprehensive listing of schools offering a degree in Computer Game Design as well as practical information on possible careers in the field.”

    Hi Garth,

    I came across your blog recently and really enjoyed browsing the entries from the last year or so. You inspired me to check out Corona for use in my own CS high school class and in an after-school program. How is your Corona book / lesson plan coming along? Please post an update! You mentioned it last spring and nothing since.

    Hello Garth,

    I liked your post “Are we doomed to be a 3rd World country tech-wise?” Not if I can help it.

    My company creates illustration-based computer tutorials that are free for any teacher or student to use.

    The tutorials are available at http://www.inpics.net. They were developed through a research study funded by the U.S. Dept. of Education.

    We’ve recently created many new tutorials, on Office 365 and Google Drive applications. Your blog readers and colleagues might appreciate knowing about them. If you could help spread the word, I’d be much obliged.

    Kind regards,

    Chris Charuhas
