ToodleBit


“A creative, hands on approach to teaching computing.”

This is the strapline for a innovative approach to teaching computing. Matthew Bevan attended BETT last year and was challenge by the lack of progression and creativity  in computing . So he went away and came up with a scheme of work that emphasizes high engagement with a practical side that encourages children to experiment and be creative in their solutions.

If you are busy teacher and don’t want to be a specialist computing teacher then this approach is for you. ToodleBit provides the kit which was actually difficult to put together. “Took a bit of research ,” Matthew says, ” Teachers won’t have time to bring together all the tools they need so we have done that work for them and given them a direction they can take forward with the children.” This is a primary tool. But you can make exciting tools like this anemometer to measure wind speed:-
