    This looks to be another promising link. Thanks Nicola.

    Thanks for the link Tess. I am hoping to record this learning of part of my appraisal so I may end up with something to share!

    Thanks Hamish. I will have another look at this site. When I investigated sites last year I found that many were going to end up costing money after the initial few lessons.

    I think this is more the direction I want to head with my students.

    Thanks Jesse. I did use Scratch with students several years ago  and think it could be useful with beginners.

    Hi, I am going to start a lunchtime group for students interested in learning how to code. I have explored lots of sites online but now feel overwhelmed. Can anyone point me in a starting direction.
    Many of the students who are keen are quite au fait with coding/programming and I intend to begin with this group (who may not need a lot of help) but then I want to expand and include a much wider range of abilities.

    Any ideas, help greatly appreciated. Thanks.

    Thanks for the honesty! We are a GAFE school so chromebooks still seems to be option for school purchasing anyway! Obviously parents have a range of options.

    Has anyone got any experience with HP Stream - 4 gb Ram . 32 gb hardrive - they save to the cloud. Apparently similar to chromebboks but have windows. Much the same price as a chromebook. Available from Warehouse Stationery for $450. I'm interested in their comparison to a chromebook - start up sped etc.

    Hi Hamish

    No mistake re the hard drive size according to the info sheet from HP! It runs Windows 8.1 Bing and sells for about $400 (educational)!

    Yes we are a GAFE school so will be going with chromebooks but just wanted to have some more knowledge about these netbooks.

    Thanks

    I have a colleague trying to promote a HP Stream Netbook (2gb Ram, 32 Gb Hardrive) as an alternative to a chromebook for students. I am sold on Chromebooks but would really appreciate any comments about Netbooks in schools.

    Hi Anne

    Yes that is another one that I tried but again you have to pay after the first few checks. I think I will try an online one I have found http://spellcheckplus.com/

    Thanks
