Summer Squeakfest 03, co-sponsored by The Interactive Multimedia
and Early Childhood Education Programs at Columbia College in cooperation
with Viewpoints Research was held August 6-8. Wade Roberts
and Carol Ann Stowe coordinated the event and Columbia
College played host, providing great facilities before the stunning
backdrop of Chicago. Fifty Squeakers from around the world attended
and enjoyed presentations by, Sebastian Hergott
and Sholom Eisenstat from Don Mills Middle School,
Randall Caton from the NASA Center for Distance
Learning, and Les Rubenfeld, Aliya Holmes and colleagues
from Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute among others.
Squeak Central experts Mike Rueger and David
Smith gave a stimulating demo which provided the group
with a glimpse into the future of Squeak.
The group agreed that SqueakFest '03 was the first of many to come!
We may gather again in Boston, Toronto or who knows where next time....stay
If parents and teachers can turn to Squeak to help them out
with things they have to do, they'll be more likely to turn to Squeak
when they wish to communicate concepts & processes. - Darius
