Blippit Blocks

Create Maths challenges or use our projects and shared them out to the whole class as templates for debugging, extension and development.

Templates
In partnership with Griffith University (Australia), Blocks comes with ready-to -use project templates.
Designed to bridge the gap between graphical Block programming & text-based coding in Python, Blippit Blocks uses the familiar 'Turtle' to help learners write and debug programs that accomplish specific goals.

Code using PureCode Python

Moving into text based coding, after Blocks, use ready-to-go templates & tasks to solve challenges or create your own project templates in PureCode Python for student groups.

Students share and learn from each other's projects as well as download their code locally.

Simple & safe web video conferencing

Blippit Spotlight is safe because it’s teacher-managed & designed to help school reach out & connect with experts & others as required.  A Blippit account isn't required to connect with your school in a call.

Classroom Computing Curriculum Resources

We collaborate with Microsoft, Google, Rising Stars, iTeach and others to best serve the needs of schools. While our App Maker is used right across the curriculum it also fulfils Computing requirements and leads on to coding and programming using Blippit Blocks and PureCode Python.

Blippit IO complements these two new curriculum mapped resources
Learn to Code from Rising Stars & iCode from iTeach (Free)
• • •
Use Blippit to make differentiated template projects with a selection of programmable Blocks needed to achieve a specific outcome but leave things unassembled!
• • •
Introduce HTML mark up language in the motivational & meaningful context of making an app.  Gives children an authentic global audience from KS 2 - 3.
• • •
Use Blippit's Blocks and PureCode Python projects that are ready to use if you don't have time to create some yourself.

Schools say

“We have been using Blippit for about 4 or 5 years now with our KS3 Computer Systems classes. It is a great package for our students to use when creating apps. A project that we always receive positive feedback on. It is simple enough for students to create a basic app using the widgets with the drag and drop facility but also provides the more advanced students with some challenge as they can incorporate HTML coding within it. We will definitely continue to use Blippit within our KS3 curriculum as it is constantly developing and represents great value for money.” 
Louise Dakers, Teacher of Computing, The Fernwood High School, Nottingham.

schools say

“The Blippit team have supported Mereside in the development, deployment and implementation of App creation into the computing curriculum.  They are always willing to offer assistance with any issues and provide hands on practical training to support teachers in delivering high quality lessons meeting the curriculum needs.  I can highly recommend Blippit to anybody.”
Tom Sale, Year 6 Teacher, Raspberry Pi Certified Educator, Mereside Primary School, Blackpool.

Schools say

"We initially had technical issues beyond Blippit’s control due to our LEA filtering but the level of technical support/general advice was simply amazing! The time and effort they put in working with us and the LEA to successfully get the software working is something I have not come across before in a company! Thanks again!"
Dan Rushton, Teacher, Thomas Becket Junior School, Worthing, West Sussex.

specialists say

“Blippit IO is a unique learning tool. It sits well on iPads, Chromebooks and traditional computers. It asks big questions of learners about content creation, design and audience.  Above all it is accessible for teachers and engaging for learners.  What more could you ask for from technology?”
Julian Coultas, Apple Distinguished Educator & Teacher, Derbyshire.

CLASS, Class+ and School Plans

Blippit (April 2018) gives you flexibility & the even more value!  We know that lots of school use Blippit in a particular school term, so, we created two new plans; Class (includes up to 40 users) and Class+ (order additional users over & above the 40 included). Some schools want the choice of using Blippit across different year groups all year around & for this we created the School license plan.  Upgrade here!
