    another online 'learn to code' platform, but with virtual assistance and code checkers (paid → good business model), and project based, so more engaging.

Lifelong Kindergarten :: MIT Media Lab - 3 views

    "Crickets are small programmable devices that can make things spin, light up, and play music. You can plug lights, motors, and sensors into a Cricket, then write computer programs to tell them how to react and behave. With Crickets, you can create musical sculptures, interactive jewelry, dancing creatures, and other artistic inventions -- and learn important math, science, and engineering ideas in the process. Crickets are based on more than a decade of NSF-funded educational research. Lifelong Kindergarten researchers collaborated with the LEGO company to create the first "programmable bricks," squeezing computational power into LEGO bricks. This research led to the LEGO MindStorms robotics kits, now used by millions of people around the world. While LEGO MindStorms is designed especially for making robots, Crickets are designed especially for making artistic creations. Crickets were refined in collaboration with the Playful Invention and Exploration (PIE) museum network, and are now sold as a product through the Playful Invention Company (PICO)."

    I began coding as a 6 year old on a Amstrad CPC-464 with a Tape drive (iPod generation see the cutting edge of 1980s design at http://media.pcadvisor.co.uk/cmsdata/news/3206319/amstrad_cpc464.jpg). With the success of apps and app stores, coding has been elevated to the mainstream. This site teaches the basics of HTML coding. http://ictmagic.wikispaces.com/ICT+&+Web+Tools
