Workshop in Israel

I was co-tutor with John Coll for this week-long workshop for the Kibbutz School of Education, University of Haifa to develop understanding of the UK experience of computer aided learning development and to encourage localisation efforts.
When Aug 23, 1986 to
Aug 28, 1986
Where Haifa

This workshop had the following goals:

  • to show course members UK materials and discuss their use in the classroom
  • to consider which materials might be suitable for versioning
  • to discuss the design and development of educational software
  • to begin an examination of the task of translation for Israeli schools

It was a pleasure working with Jon Coll - a hero for me of early endeavour in Oundle School and the author of the BBC computer handbook. It was also an early experience of international 'translation' of UK ideas, which tests them against local conditions and demands a succinct articulation to help those with English as a second language.

Lewis Carroll describes a fictional map that had:

"the scale of a mile to the mile."

A character notes some practical difficulties with such a map and states that:

"we now use the country itself, as its own map, and I assure you it does nearly as well."
— Sylvie and Bruno Concluded, Lewis Carroll, 1893
