    Sticks and Stones: An Alphabet Book for the 21st Century

    Sticks and Stones: An Alphabet Book for the 21st Century

    Sticks and Stones uses the framework of an alphabet to explore the basic language of computers as well as life on the US-Mexican border. It combines aspects of teaching with game like animation. The alphabet used in Sticks and Stones is the binary (ASCII) code used to represent the letters. Each letter has an associated word, accompanied by an image chosen to present an aspect of border life, along with brief commentary. Sticks and stones are used to represent the 1's and 0's of the binary code used to spell out each of the words associated with the letters. Tapping on any of the letters in the images begins an animation which brings onto the page an enlarged image of the binary representation of the letter as well as a sentence explaining the relationship. Sound files are associated with many of the entries, and active spots are sometimes hidden in the images to play the sounds. Sticks and Stones can be read at multiple levels: as a 'simple' alphabet for younger children, where the animation will invite them to ask questions about the content; as an interactive tool suitable for teaching older children how computers translate letters and words, and as social commentary for an adult audience.
