I will soon be starting a break time club for children who want to learn the basics of programming. So far I have five Year 8 and 7s signed up to take part. To begin with I am going to use Hackety-Hack to introduce them to programming using Ruby.
I have downloaded and installed it on the ICT room PCs and this afternoon I had a quick play myself – I plan to learn it alongside the children.
I will keep you posted on how we get on.
