Kodu Game Programming for kids

12:32 Posted by Jon Carlos No comments
I was reading a blog this morning from a Scottish developer and start up expert Kate Ho. [Twitter]

The article named Great tools for teaching programming covered a video for CES 2009 on Kodu.

I've not seen anything quite a amazing as an introduction to programming for kids. The premise is you create a 3D world populate it with characters and apply functions to items in your world. It looks very much like little big planet but you can do this on Windows in School labs rather than on a PS3.
