Rodolfo Converso of Argentina created many projects with Etoys.
You may see them at:
He authorized us to publish them in the Squeakland Showcase to share them with the world in view of the forthcoming
OLPC Realness Summit
This activity is fun and has varying levels of difficulty. It is a creative use of script tiles. It is a race against time, but it doesn't punish incorrect answers, so students are safe to build their confidence and skill.
Students might enjoy making scripts for sound and animation, or adding artwork for the blue blocks.
[I feel there is too much text for those who don't feel confident reading Spanish. Perhaps it could be shorter or simpler, or record the text with a microphone.
The balloon help 'pulsa para ejecutar el guion "guion10" en el actor llamado "Operador 1"' is distracting. I don't know if it can be changed with Etoys or if it needs the Smalltalk tools.
"Texto 4" (Tota |:) disappears off the bottom of my screen.]
I love this project! It is a great way to allow students to practice multiplication facts. The timer is a nice incentive to keep going, the score keeper is fun, and there are endless problems. The picture blocks are a really nice way to visualize the problem and let students reinforce the meaning of a multiplication fact. The cat eyes are a fun addition too! Nice project!
