Learner-friendly scripting environment in GeoGebra for informatics class
some learners asked me if and how I created/programmed the GeoGebra worksheets and asked why they couldn't do something like that in informatics class.
But there is one point that makes usage in school environment impossible:
Scripting inside the GeoGebra application is cumbersome to say the least, I always wrote the scripts outside GeoGebra and zipped the ggb manually, but that is no solution for learners.
Of course this is long-term idea, but maybe this functionally can be taken from some library or other open-source IDE. I would really love to see that in GeoGebra in a future version, this would open GeoGebra for a new subject and would be so much better than what is currently done in many informatics classes (Excel).
Do you know that there some turtle commands?
I do now and I already imagine how that could be used (a simple game like the turtle is moving automatically using setInterval and is not allowed to touch a circle (fall into the water)).
Although accessing the turtle using the browser command console is very simple, writing functions is still highly complicated without a nice programming environment. I'm not talking about 6th graders that should play little, but grades 11-13 (Age around 16-19), that should learn about fundamental concepts in informatics and use them to write simple programs with simple algorithms.
Very sad to read that this idea is declined without any further comment or explanation.
