RequirementsInternet - Low BandwidthInternet - High BandwidthDesktop - MacDesktop - WindowsDesktop - ChromebookMobile - iPad

Highly intuitive as a product, but requires internet-connected devices (tablets, laptops, PCs). Should not be significant broadband constraints. Access provided remotely (it's automated for schools who sign up via internet), generic pupil login for the school means process relatively simple

Set Up

TrainingWebinarsDocumentationVideos

Designed to require very little knowledge on either teacher or pupil's part, the service includes extensive video instruction within it. In terms of a broader understanding of the coding curriculum, some professional development for the teachers may be beneficial (more relevant for those who are new to the subject)

Discovery coding is useful for our school as teachers lack expertise in this area and therefore having preplanned lessons and video tutorials is very helpful and reduces anxiety of teaching this subject.

So easy to use. Totally engaging system and method. The explanation videos help 'non-expert' teachers to deliver with confidence. The best coding system, lessons and level of creativity for any primary school
