Kodu speaks micro:bit!
We've given Kodu new programming tiles that allow interaction with the BBC micro:bit. With these new tiles, you can control character movement using the accelerometer, jump and shoot with a button press, display animations and scrolling text on the screen, interface with other devices through the IO pins, and much more.

Hour of Kodu for Parents
After a school day and a day work, we dedicate one hour for Coding. Students with 9/10 years and respective parents share ideas and knowledge on how to create games in Kodu. A very interesting and enriching day, for students supporting parents to plan for parents who took the first steps in code and for me as a teacher.
Thanks to these innovative students
Depois de um dia de aulas e de um dia de trabalho, ainda dedicamos uma hora à programação. Alunos com 9 / 10 anos e respetivos pais partilharam ideias e saberes sobre como criar jogos em Kodu. Um final de dia muito interessante e enriquecedor, para os alunos que apoiaram os pais a programar para os pais que deram os primeiros passos na programação e para mim enquanto professor.
Obrigado a estes alunos inovadores! Read more here!
