An Hour of Code well spent

So privileged to be back home in an ICT suite today. I worked with a class of mixed age Key Stage 2 children as part of our enrichment week.

We used Code.org and the associated Angry birds maze tutorial. I would highly recommend stating children the hour of 20 challenges. Motivation was high and children were learning command, loops , condionals and debugging and collaboration. Except they behaved like they were playing a game.

  1. Ant I will have to trawl your past blogs as I can appreciate how important coding etc will be especially after Sept. I have just started to play with Scratch briefly but are you aware of KANO and their integration of the Raspberry Pi?
    I also thought it would be fun to use Scratch to make public information style mini films or games.
