Feedback from past workshop

“Yesterday was very useful and inspirational! I am hoping to cascade it to our prep department asap and also to talk our ICT coordinator into procuring some spheros. I enjoyed the style of the day whereby we were actively trying out the apps and investigating the variety whilst also having discussions around cross-curricular use. The introduction and explanation of what algorithms are was also a great way to draw us into then using the first app.” – Trevor

“The course on Tuesday was incredibly informative; we recently purchased 45 new iPads so was really useful to have a list of recommended apps to use and pass on to staff. The consensus with the staff at my school is that they find Scratch quite tricky, so the various coding apps will certainly make them feel at ease.” – James
