Novel way to teach a younger crowd Mar 28, 2004
Well, the book certainly is innovative! Aimed at a high school audience, or even younger, as evidenced by the youthful hero, Bert. The story is told by him, in first person.
The teaching is in the form of a journey experienced by Bert, as he plunges into the matrix of the Internet. Aided by the friendly, knowledgeable and older Dr F [sic]. In the spirit of the duo from "Back to the Future". Indeed, there is a bit of the adventurous ambience and charm of that movie.
Bert ends up comprehending a goodly amount in his wanderings. From HTML to the browsers to file compression ideas to the packet switching that is the core of the Internet. Many more ideas are also invoked. The amount of jargon, and the concepts behind these, that Bert now knows is impressive.
Would that other more "serious" books be as educational.
