Using Blippit Blocks at Key Stage 2 & 3
Now with project templates from Griffith University (Australia)

Blippit Blocks is the latest addition to Blippit IO. Designed to bridge the gap between graphical Block programming and text-based coding in Python.  Blippit Blocks uses the familiar 'Turtle' to help children to write and debug programs that accomplish specific goals, solve problems by decomposing them into smaller parts use sequence and repetition in programs.

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) and backed by their incredible reputation in computing, Blocks also comes with ready to use project template challenges.

Blippit Blocks Projects can be exported to PureCode Python for more advanced text-based coding development if needed using the popular Python language.

Code using PureCode Python in the Cloud
Now with project templates from Griffith University (Australia)

If you can remember Logo and that programmable little Turtle that used to zip about the screen following your written instructions then  you’ll have a really good starting point with PureCode Python.

A natural progression into text based coding, after Blocks, use the ready-to-go templates and tasks to solve challenges.  Or create your own project templates in PureCode Python for your own student groups who can open and work on them from anywhere anytime.

Students can share and learn from each other's projects as well as download their code locally to use however they like.

Web Video Conferencing made safe & simple at last

Blippit IO Spotlight is safe because it’s teacher-managed and designed to help school reach out and connect as it might if Skype wasn’t blocked or open to safeguarding concerns.  The teacher sets up an instant or scheduled face-to-face video call for up to four connections.  You can chat message to share web links easily and quickly as well as file sharing too.  The teacher can see who is online at any given moment and invite other ’live’ users at their school into a mentoring or tutorial session on demand.  The teacher can invite in external experts or guests who don't have an account in Blippit IO for that ‘real world’ input or audience factor anywhere in the world.

PureCode Python
Included in our FULL license, Turtle graphics is a popular way for introducing programming to children. It was part of the original Logo programming language developed by Wally Feurzig and Seymour Papert in 1966. 

PureCode Python is a next step along the coding journey coding from Blippit Blocks.  It enables your lessons to focus on text based programming using Python.  Start with a blank project or create projects yourself for your students to use.

Move a project from Blippit Blocks and use it as a basis for detailed development in PureCode Python. Accessible from anywhere with onscreen project playback, peer sharing plus teacher project templates included.

• • •
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.

What 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.

Schools 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.
