From the home page:
This site documents my experiences teaching kids to program, including all the lesson notes.
Note it is not intended for people learning to program but for those teaching.
As I give the ‘lessons’ to more kids I’ll note down here what works and what doesn’t.
My focus is on teaching kids to program in a school environment, rather than at home, although you can easily follow-along at home too.
The focus on teaching in schools implies the following:
You are teaching several kids at once, it’s not 1:1
You are time limited, probably under an hour a session, certainly less than 2.
Since you probably need 20 copies of everything it needs to be cheap, preferably free.
