About the Forge

These links will allow you to explore further the potential design, use, and adaptation of the Poetry Tools.


Some of the Poetry Tools are an experiment in open-source educational software development using Macromedia Flash's Actionscript. It is a continuation,extension and modern application of the work that was done in K-12 education with the programming language LOGO in the 1980's.

NetLogo is a descendent of Mitch Resnik's StarLogo, developed at the MIT Media Lab. NetLogo is available for: Mac | Windows / PC | Linux so we believe it could be a particularly good platform for discussion of Open Source K-12 educational activities.

Developed at University of Virginia, enter for Technology and Teacher Education
