For today’s children, learning to code is fun.
Gone are the days when that meant dry classroom sessions and number-crunching.
With the advent of simplified computers like the Raspberry Pi, and rich learning software like Scratch, pupils are turning play into useful skills.
Have you ever come across a pupil who was angry, defiant, vindictive, and spiteful – and you couldn’t put your finger on the cause?
There are some pupils for whom a person on authority – such as a teacher – is like a red rag to a bull.
They could be suffering from Oppositional Defiant Disorder (ODD).
Every teacher knows that each pupil has a different set of abilities, skills, and personality traits.
In any class, there will be those who learn quickly, and those who need to take their time.
There will also be some who are Great Learners, and they could be the key to helping the whole class, and the whole school.
Why? The answer is that with the right mindset, a growth mindset, anyone can become a Great Learner. That happens once pupils can see how it works.
If they can see it, they can be it.
