Home - Barefoot Computing | The Computing Challenge for a Primary School | Scoop.it
Somerset eLIM's insight:

Barefoot computing offers training and resources for teachers to introduce programming ideas and other computing concepts to learners.  I would advise keeping a balance between the learner interacting directly with the learning object of the floor robot, model, software or app and the computing unplugged ideas.  Research suggests the interaction with that learning object is the key to developing computational thinking.
