Espresso Coding is a new service from Espresso Education that teaches pupils to code and make their own apps to share with their friends and parents. It’s also FREE for an extended period until October 31st 2014. In England, the subject of ICT is being replaced by Computing in the English Curriculum and will need to be taught from September 2014. While aspects of ICT will continue, the draft Computing programme of study places a large emphasis on teaching Year 1 pupils to learn to code.
If you’ve used Scratch, why not give Espresso Coding a try? Link to the site here.
