Writing a book…

…maybe, anyway.

Programming is being (re-)introduced in English primary schools as part of the reformulated National Curriculum and this is certainly A Good Thing.

One worry, though, is whether there are enough teachers with the basic skills in programming needed to teach. I am pretty certain there are not: hence the importance of volunteer schemes such as “Code Club”.

I think there is scope for a text that gives teachers some familiarity with key programming concepts, using MIT’s Scratch language/environment and so I am making a stab at writing such a text for electronic distribution.

Let’s see how far I get.
