I drop you a short mail just to report on last Saturday training
session that we've been organizing with the French Planete Sciences
association for technology teachers from the region of Toulouse.
About 15 of them attended, including people from the Teachers college of Tarbes.
We were using a special Squeak image based on EToys 4 with extensions
to control external electronic boards (including the Arduino board).
People had very positive comment on their experience with Etoys and
its possible connections with the "real world", especially since
robotics is now part of the official curriculum in high-schools in
Details (in French) and a couple of pictures here:
