KTurtle is an educational programming environment that uses TurtleSpeak,
a programming language loosely based on and inspired by LOGO. The goal of KTurtle is to make programming as easy and accessible as possible, which makes KTurtle suitable for teaching young students the basics of math, geometry and... programming.
Some of the main features of KTurtle include:
- the ability to translate the programming commands into the native language of the student using the KDE translation framework.
- all you need integrated in in one application.
- simplified programming terminology.
- intuitive syntax highlighting and error markers.
