From Google check their Made With Code initiative. Note that Google’s Blockly is being used for the code.
I agree with Simon Singh’s sentiments that Coding / Computing should be a separate and optional GCSE; I think using resources such as Scratch we can illustrate some concepts well and help students understand them; polygons and angles is a particularly good example of this and one I have written on before.
For some rather more advanced coding, there’s a rather nice Christmas tree generator here; select Auto Generate and sit back and admire the tree! Note that for any Scratch project you can ‘look inside’ and see the coding – a good way to learn more syntax.
See Christmas Resources for the always updated Christmas collection.
My pleasure Paula – coding is something I’ll return to in 2015.
Thank you for putting together all theses resources!
