Barefoot Coding

Helpful resources for learning about computational thinking, including many activities to teach elementary school students computational thinking concepts.

This website requires free registration to use. The collection of resources is tagged by computational thinking concept, making it easier to find a specific concept and expand on that. The goal of the creation of the website was to prepare UK teachers for the UK standards, so it has a school focus, but can be used by any professional. The Barefoot CT Poster graphic was of particular use in planning a series of events teaching different concepts, but there is all kinds of information and practical applications.
