Schools to get free creative coding software for national computing curriculum

TES, 2 August 2017

The new learning-to-code package, a partnership between Ada Advance and Turinglab, piloted at 30 schools over the summer, is designed for pupils in key stage 3 and key stage 4

More than 1,000 pupils have taken part in a six-week pilot of what is claimed to be the UK’s first creative coding software platform aligned to the national computing curriculum.

The free learning-to-code platform, which was developed by Turinglab, an education technology organisation, uses a mix of gamification and creative project-based software tools.

It was developed in partnership with Ada's blended learning arm, Ada Advance.
