Autochthonous Change: Self-Renewal through Open Software Design
Hedbring, Charles
Behavior Analyst Today, v6 n1 p13-26 2005
In all likelihood, currently employed therapists and teachers grew up with computer technology. Part of their computer culture included programming computers for entertainment using popular consumer software like Microsoft Basic. Within this social-educational milieu, the "FACTS+" curriculum represents one long-term project covering the past twenty years to combine computer programming and public school instruction. This article describes the scope, sequence, and content of the effort and most importantly, offers educators access to the source code. With access to the actual software source code, perhaps more youthful and creative programming-competent therapists and teachers can improve and tailor the "FACTS+" curriculum to better meet pressing legal mandates and local instructional demands.
