2) Now write about
Three things that I learnt were how to make an object move and turn on its own in Etoys, I also learnt how to make my own icon using HTML kit and set it as my icon on Sugar, another thing that I learnt was how to draw certain shapes using turtle art
Three things that I enjoyed were making games on physics, using scratch and creating shapes on turtle art
Three things that I didn’t like were Etoys because it kept on freezing and I had to restart my work. I also did not like hacking sugar because it took too long and was confusing, another thing I did not like was
3) State which was the following with reasons:
The best thing was Physics because it is an easy program to understand and to use, it is also fun making up your own games on there
The worst thing was Etoys because the work too long to finish and it also kept freezing on me which meant I had to restart my work all over again
The most interesting thing was scratch because there are so many different things on there that you can do and also a lot of ways to do them
The most difficult thing was Etoys because it is hard to find some things when using it, it is not set out very well

4) XO
Is the xo or olpc a good idea for the children of the developing world? State your opinion and give reasons
I think the xo is a good idea because it does not need that much power and can last long without being plugged in. It is also durable and can survive being dropped, this is good for little kids
