Can be used from an early age up to University level. http://www.alice.orgComputer Science Unplugged: Wonderful set of exercises from Canterbury University in New Zealand. Example, error detection/parityCS Inside: Lots of downloadable exercises demonstrating a variety of computing concepts from Glasgow University. Free magazine and excellent supporting website from Queen Mary College, London. CS4Fn editor, Paul Curzon has written a series of excellent articles demonstrating basic computing concepts, downloadable from Programming: If you wish to introduce a different programming paradigm is a wonderful introduction to functional programming, developed as part of the gifted and talented initiative. It can make an excellent project for an immersion / extension activity. The environment and worksheets can be downloaded from the site.Resources for learning 2GameMaker: plus supporting book and introductory site with school level tutorials Environment for introducing object oriented programming from the University of Kent. plus Introduction to Programming with Greenfoot by Michael Kölling is an alternative approach to teaching programming via a language or a ‘microworld’ and illustrated in this thesis: Microsoft’s 3D Game Creator for the Xbox and PC (warning) is a game for challenging pupils to develop logical and sequencing skills involving a few functions.
