Please get in touch if anyone’s interested in seeing the “behind the scenes” learning involved in this, or finding out more about Scratch. Developed by MIT (http://scratch.mit.edu), it’s ideal for developing “computational thinking”, a logical, structured approach which is increasingly seen as important across the curriculum. And it’s hugely engaging!
