I am no longer, as of October 2008 working as a class teacher at Sandaig, so have moved this blog to another server. If you want to comment on this post, pleas search for it there.
I realise that there are lot of areas (as well as music) that I don't get. I recall getting the first version of Myst along with HyperCard 2.3 and not getting that at all, I spent a wee bit of time wandering in an aimless fashion then a good deal more time gently hacking into the game to check out it's Hypercard roots.
Anyway there is not much time left this session and we are getting a refresh of hardware tomorrow which might slow thing up, but I hope to get my class to follow the AllStars progress using Samorost and perhaps replicate some of their activities> I might get to see what I can get out of this type of gaming. Moving a little way out of my comfort zone.(Note to self Samorost2, thanks Ewan).
I have to say that it’s been great seeing a notion I had about a month ago being taken into action by KimP. Her kids’ work is just great. Looking forward to see how you exploit it. For me, it’s the ability to get kids out of their comfort zones in terms of imagination and stimulus.

Samorost has really “grabbed” my kids’ imaginations – they talk, work and think Samorost! They love the intricate worlds and settings and they are caught up in the problems and the need to work out what to do.
Can’t wait to see what you get to do with it next!
