Codie is a new robotic toy which teaches children the principles of computer coding via a companion iOS app. Codie comes with a unique visual programming language, which organizes the code of robotics into blocks.

By arranging these blocks together children can create real programs, which are then executed by the toy robot. While playing with Codie, children get to learn about how computers think and get to know the fundamental programming principles in a fun and playful way.

Codie is currently fundraising via an Indigogo page, and there’s a few days left to get on board. It’s already made its target, so expect these to be available to purchase normally later this year.

A quick post for half term.  This Theremin simulator provides an on-screen version of the staple musical instrument of 50s sci fi movies. A theremin, for those who don’t know, is an early type of electronic instrument. It’s played by waving your hands around a pair of antennae, and is the only instrument that can be played from a distance without touching it. Using it you can create noises that sound like they came from early episodes of Doctor Who.

Notebookcast is a free online whiteboard that allows you to share whiteboard space with any devices. You don’t need to install any software, it runs within your browser.

Like any whiteboard software you can draw and add images and shapes. Once you have created a board you can share it with up to 10 users, all of whom can add to the drawing in real-time. This would be good for collaborative work.

Google Images has always been a great place to find images, but it does cause problems since they may well be covered by copyright rules. You have been able to search for Creative Commons, and copyright-free, images using Google Images but the feature has been a little hidden.

Thankfully, Google have now updated the search tools to make it a little easier to filter by the Usage Rights, and find images you are allowed to reuse and copy.

It’s commonly accepted that you should start every lesson by displaying the learning objectives. But they don’t have to always be displayed in the same, boring way.

Here’s a couple of creative tools that you might want to use to display the learning objectives in a more exciting and engaging way.
