One area of concern that many teachers are displaying is the confidence of supporting pupils in learning coding or programming. Many educators are self-taught, and this was evident during our #UKEdChat Coding Session in February 2014.
It is possible to teach coding to pupils using iPad and/or Android apps, and we are continually updating our list of apps which help support this (click here to view), but the developers behind the coding app Kodable (Free version for iPad, or £4.99 for the pro version) have gone a step further and devised a booklet and resources to support those teaching coding to primary/elementary pupils. Clearly focused on the use of their app, this is a fantastic resource to help educators who need confidence to develop their own skills, plus a collection of resources which can help support the learning process (for teacher and pupil).
