Using Squeak as an etoy platform

Squeak is based on the Smalltalk object-oriented programming language developed by Xerox in the 1980s. Today, it is used as a “media authoring tool” to create virtual, educational toys in the classroom. Using a constructivist framework, “some students work with media created in Squeak by their teachers; others are creating their own simulations and models to test their theories and deepen their understanding of math and science.”
