+Decoded have some really sweet learning resources that I'm envious of - I wish I created them myself. Each one has a narration, index and web page view. Slide shows The Sixteen Steps..

+Decoded also have Wonders of the Web that gives a sublime approach to learning. Notice the play button top right with split panes taking up remainder of the page.

The UK #yearofcode  is here .. Start Now at uk.code.org

#uk   #hourofcode  launches today .. uk.code.org ..
quote Youngsters are set for a big day out in London to show off their work and help promote a national school initiative.

Pupils at Uppingham Community College have been developing their own Windows tablet applications as part of an ongoing IT project.

They have now been selected to attend a special event aimed at promoting Hour of Code, a week-long programme that will encourage schools to take up coding, which is used to write computer programmes, to create fun and interactive applications.

The small group of pupils will be joined by three other schools for the occasion at Westminster City School in London on Monday, along with the school’s head of IT Ray Chambers.
