Story Writing Coding

The complete guide for Primary/Elementary children coding stories using the WeeBee engine

This book introduces programming ('coding') to children of Primary/Elementary School age and beyond. They will learn how to code animated stories using the professional language Java. The approach is novel since children will work with Java text, rather than dragging and dropping blocks.

All you need is a Windows PC. The engine is self-contained and you do not need to install any software onto your PC.

Teacher reviews:

"From the first lesson pupils were excited and engaged with the program. It made them think about programming in a very different way from when they have used block-based programming. After using the programme I felt that I also had a greater understanding of programming concepts as well as the pupils.""The book provides clear instructions and next steps, with a directed goal in mind - both short term and later on in subsequent lessons. Giving tangible characters and scenes has excited and motivated children in their programming, particularly in the beginning when it was new. It is a clear progression of skill and children can work at their own pace. The teacher does not need a superior knowledge of coding to follow the weebee engine. My knowledge of coding has been developed more from using the weebee engine than block-based programmes that I have taught in other sessions."
