Adventures in Alice Programming


ITEST project Scaling up an Innovative Approach for Attracting Students to Computing shares its materials and lesson plans developed from its workshop series on its website. Originally used and created as part of a workshop series for middle school and high school teachers to learn how to incorporate Alice into their own lesson plans, the curricula provided are designed for use with middle school and high school students.  Lesson plans range across all academic disciplines (math, science, english, foreign language, social studies/history, etc.) and across several age ranges (though the majority of lesson plans are for middle school and high school).  Alice materials (videos, tutorials, and example worlds) from Alice Version 2 and Alice Version 3 are also provided on the site.

NOTE about downloading Alice worlds. Most likely your computer does not know what an Alice world file is, with extention .a2w. If the Alice world you download is called story.a2w, your computer may think it is a .zip file and rename it to or DO NOT unpack it or extract files, but instead rename it back to story.a2w. If you cannot figure out how to rename it, then you can leave it with the .zip extension. Start Alice and when you try to load a file, where it says "Files of Type:", select All Files. Then you can see there.
