I’ve always been a voracious reader and as a Computing teacher I particularly enjoy reading about developments in Computing education in the UK and other countries. From the first time I read about and then saw Scratch in action I was hooked and excited by the possibilities. Here was an environment I could use to show them the power of creating programs that they could also be creative in!
Designing the Scratch Animation and Games programming sequences for Crieff High school pupils was the most fun I’ve had with curriculum development in a while. They were also regularly the biggest highlights for many pupils we surveyed at the end of the year!
