This video reminds me of those great stories about kids at PARC… They are using Scratch to teach children how to use their Dynabooks
From the teachers (Alan Kay has obviously developed a mind control device):
“We’d like the outcome of Code Club to be a whole generation that understands… how to make [computers] do what they want, so they can create their own tools and their own games”
“I really wanted to get the kids… learning how to make things work, [rather] than just being consumers”
From a student:
“It’s really good for learning… before we were just… moving around, but… now we know how to make proper games”
“Our mission… to give every child in the UK the chance to learn to code.
It is our aim to have a Code Club in 25% of primary schools in the UK by the end of 2014″
