Get inspired about coding in your classroom

This video shows how easy it is to get started in Primary with coding and the clear links to learning.


A great article called 'Why Code' points out the following about coding:
  • Simply put, it is a set of behaviours and procedures that solve a problem.
  • Engages, empowers and provides students with control over their tasks and their lives
  • Can be done in a 'low fi, hi fi and no fi environment'.
  • We already code in our everyday life when we read, follow directions etc.
  • Gives students the skills to work in the current and future world of technology
