LiveCode Adopted by More than 25% of High Schools in Scotland
25% of all high schools in Scotland is pretty amazing adoption. This would be fascinating to study. How does programming in HyperTalk differ from graphical languages (like Alice or Scratch) versus textual programming languages designed for professionals (like Java or Python)? What transfers from learning HyperTalk to learning more traditional textual languages later? How do students’ notional machines of computing differ when learning these different languages?
We’re delighted to be able to announce that with the adoption today by all 24 schools in the North Lanarkshire Council region here in Scotland, we now have over a quarter of all high schools in Scotland using LiveCode! What a great model for other countries to follow once the platform goes open source.
