Tools to use for CompSci

Here I summarise my findings and decisions for the best software to be using for CompSci GCSE:

  1. I set all my students the first 28 exercises of Codecademy’s Python course.  I used the excellent classroom tracking tool to see the progress made during the holidays and made a few timely phone calls to ensure as many as possible were up to date by our first lesson of the term.
  2. Python, Pygame and TkInter. How to install here.
  3. Google Docs (and developing Google Classroom).
