I'm teaching Pharo to students that are already familiar with Java (master level).
I take full Pharo and they are quite disturbed by both the syntax and the disconnection with files. That was my goal actually to make them discover a totally different universe.
Some end up loving it, and even turn Smalltalkers :-)
Still I'm interested by a simplified environment at least for the first lab sessions.

My first and very simple exercices require object inspector to observe effects due to direct messages sent to objects. Thus, object inspector permits me to explain object state, object behavior,...

>>> I've been teaching introductory programming in Pharo for the last three semesters and starting my fourth. I was wondering whether anyone else is doing that. I've put quite a bit of effort into it and would be willing to share my materials if anyone was interested. For instance, I've created a few little MicroWorlds for beginners to use (jumping directly into the browser is too difficult for complete programming novices). One is for doing turtle graphics. I've gone ahead and shared that for Pharo 2.0. You can get it in the Configuration Browser under the name EduTech. If you have some interest, let me know and I'll see what I can do.
