Turtle Block

I looked online for more tutorials and found some very interesting artistic designs. I learned to appreciate commands a lot more. Unlike the hokey pokey dance and us humans, we already start shaking a body part before the command is given. As for questions with Turtle Block, I think more tutorials would help.

        Last semester I had to program the mBot to write my name with a pen attached to it! This is exactly what can be used. You should try it out!

          Hi Guido,

          Great job on spelling your name! I have been trying to spell "Hola" practically all week *LOL*. I am going to compare your coding with mine to see what changes can be made. Also, I agree that more tutorials would be helpful! I didn't find as many as I expected.

            Hi Guido, you did a great job with this! After I saw yours I went back to mine and spent some more time playing around with the program.

              Thanks. I actually want to recreate that lake pass that Papert had going on in that YouTube video of his. That looks challenging.

                This is terrific work!

                I had a student (9th grader) who once created an "action" for each letter, then asked the user to type in his/her name, and then wrote out the students' name. It was pretty cool.

                I also applaud your initiative in managing your own learning.
