teaching idea

I've often thought that the most appealing way to learn programming would be to learn how to write programs for your mobile device.  But most introductions to mobile device programming assume you already know the programming language, and the tutorials are just set up to teach you the exceptions and differences. 

I also love teaching Processing as a way to learn a programming language (Java) while getting to make visually interesting work almost immediately - it's such a rewarding way to learn. 

So maybe the ideal combination would be to learn Processing and programming a mobile device at the same time...? Here's a link with (apparently) straightforward instructions on how to program an Android device, using Processing. 

I don't have an Android phone, so I can't test this in the coolest way, but it looks promising.  Something to pursue...
