I am a secondary school CS teacher in the UK. I am lucky enough to be a CAS Master Teacher and as part of this role I am working with local primary schools to support their CS teaching and to encourage children to code at home.
After the success of Kano with my own x2 children I decided to go large and develop a mobile classroom of x15 Kano’s.
I have thoroughly enjoyed this experience and believe that KanoOS is enormously powerful in engaging children between the ages 4 and 12 into the World of computing. I urge all secondary CS teachers to reach out to their primary colleagues and run a similar programme. I have said as much on the CAS forum.
If you are interested I have blogged this project:
I realise that I am using KanoOS on non-Kano equipment which may not be strictly be ‘cricket’ but I would like to share how amazing KanoOS is for Primary School outreach. If it helps, I have bought x2 Kano computers for my own children and link to Kano from my help pages as I want parents to purchase this equipment to allow their children to continue at home.
