A while back I wrote about using LOGO as entry route for pupils into programming. I guess many of you have been thinking of ways of doing the same.
As if introducing programming and being a teacher wasn’t already hard enough, David Wees decided to tweak the Blockly open-source code and turn it into a nifty fusion of LOGO’s commands and Scratch’s drag-and-snap coding environment.
It’s way better than anything I’ve seen in terms of entry into programming, for younger pupils in particular. What I like about it is that it’s the perfect launchpad for LOGO proper or Scratch.
