UK Hour of Code

Are you coding this week?

The hour of code which was so successful in USA is here!  You will find brilliant tutorials, helpful videos, ‘no computer required’ activities to get coding up and running in your school.  The activities will work cross platform, so whether you have PCs or tablets, everyone can take part.  If you haven’t registered yet, I urge you to have a look.  Your pupils can have their own logins and you can monitor their progress as they work through the tutorials, or just delve straight in and give it a go.  As the name suggests, you really will only need 1 hour to get your pupils inspired – and why not give an hour to staff so that they can have a go to?
