We're All Australians Now follows the tradition of A & R children's classics such as MULGA'S BILL BICYCLE and CLICK GO THE SHEARS, A.B. 'Banjo' Paterson's poem is illustrated by the award-winning Mark Wilson.
In 1915, Australia's much-loved bush poet Banjo Paterson wrote, as an open letter to the troops, a poem he titles 'We're All Australians Now'.
In this beautifully illustrated picture book, award-winning illustrator Mark Wilson evokes the spirit of Paterson's words in memory of those who fought in World War One.
In this book, the author presents a new vision of learning through design and production, and describes computer programming as a source of a learning and design power. As means of studying this extended notion of children's programming, the author implemented "Instructional Software Design Projects" to explore the learning that takes place when students develop complete mathematical software products designed for other students in their school. The results demonstrate that the young designers learned not only about mathematics (fractions) and programming (Logo), but also about design and user interfaces, as well as representational, pedagogical, and communicational issues.
