LITERACY FROM SCRATCH

http://www.literacyfromscratch.org.uk/

Literacy from Scratch is a response to the UK government’s initiative to develop computer programming skills in Primary School. It is a  joint project between schools in London and in Prague. The project was developed by a group of postgraduate students from those cities – aided further by schools in the UK and the Czech Republic, as the students rose to this challenge. The site offers masses of resources: teaching videos, good ideas, cross curricular activities, completed examples and all sorts of projects to investigate further – maybe some examples that you can actually use in your lessons. This site also reports back on projects already created by the post graduate students and are ready for use in class.

The resources are shared and able to be downloaded. There is also a commentary available about: what worked, what were the problems, how could they be overcome and how the resource could be used in the classroom? For anyone still wondering about computing and coding in the classroom, it is worth investigating. There are some lovely projects being uploaded which can be shared in the classroom.
