Re: [K12OSN] OT: Who is teaching Python?



I taught a mini-unit of about 5 weeks of Python after a year of Scheme. The kids seemed to enjoy it. I would definitely recommend it over C++.

I am seriously considering switching from teaching C++ to Python next
year in my intro course using my k12ltsp lab.

1) How many other teachers on this list teach Python? I would love to
hear your experiences/recommendations for or against.

2) One thing I am worried about is if 30 kids are running a python
script. Will that bring my server (dual Xeon 2.8 / 4G ram) to it's
knees?

3) Anyone have success teaching pygame at the senior high school
level? Kids love to program games!
