[school-discuss] Pycon, Portland, Oregon, May 2017

Charles Cossé, programmer of Tux Scrabble, Tux Math (http://www.asymptopia.org/) and also one of our schoolforgers, is presenting his program for encouraging kids to balance their time on-line with learning before play at this year's Pycon.  Notably, the program comes with a deep system of allowing parents to pay programmers.

Presented by  Charles Cossé and Kirby Urner


Requiring kids to earn their internet access from a self-serve education platform can serve as an effective means to supplement their education and develop a host of other life-skills, such as time management, accountability and attention to detail. The desire for credits serves as a single point of motivation which can be harnessed to teach any subject matter through well-designed activities. Enabling parents to control distribution of a subscription fee to activity developers of their choice keeps the user and developer communities connected with value flowing in both directions. Requiring FLS licensing and usability outside of this Django-powered credit-earning platform stimulates development of Edu-FLS software which thereby empowers children everywhere.
