INSIDE Blippit Io

App Maker

App Maker

INCLUDED
Such a simple but powerful tool, the new Blippit IO App Maker for Key Stage 2-3 is for use in the computing curriculum & beyond.

Schools use our app maker to create project information apps to publish on to Planet Blippit our very own app sharing platform.

Start your coding journey very simply if you like by introducing mark-up language (HTML5) in our Writer Widget - a kind of building block if you like.

Our apps are often assessable projects in school that demonstrate knowledge on a topic by sharing evidence of achievement in image, audio, video and more ways.

KS 3 extend into using Javascript via our Writer Widget if the focus is more 'computing' centric.

 
Extensive teacher admin tools support monitoring of pupil progress, assessment through feedback and full control over app publishing.

Blippit Blocks

BlocKS

INCLUDED
Built on Google's Blippit Blocks is a block-based visual programming tool (built on the popular Blockly platform by Google) for Key Stage 2-3 Computing.

Blocks is a fantastically open-ended tool for problem solvers, bug finders and loop loving learners.  It comes with computational & inquisitive thinking opportunities as standard! 

Blippit Blocks gives you the added advantages of project creation, class project sharing and review, onscreen playback & teacher project templates.

Students can seamlessly export their Blocks Code with a click of a button into *PureCode Python because in Blippit Blocks it's not Javascript but Python that's under the hood!
*PureCode Python is an extra tool in Blippit IO

OPTIONAL
PureCode Python is a next step along the coding journey coding from Blippit Blocks.  It enables your lessons to focus on text based programming using Python.

Start with a blank page or create projects for your students en masse.   We know text based coding isn't for everyone for reasons of language preference or age so PureCode Python is NOT included as standard in Blippit IO; it is purchased separately.

Move a project from Blippit Blocks and use it as a basis for more development in PureCode Python.   Accessible from anywhere with onscreen project creation, playback, peer publishing and teacher project templates supporting ICT and computer science.

It's a KS 3 tool but we also get whizzy primary year 6 students using this for after school club extension work and more.

Spotlight

INCLUDED
'Spotlight' is a safe alternative to Skype and Google Hangouts with the advantage of being  filter-friendly & teacher controlled.

Connect your class on your terms to 'beyond-school' expertise  wherever it may be.  You can text chat, share files such as presentations or other work and of course actually see each other for that essential human connection.

Collaborative learning is so immediate and so easy.  All you need is an exciting context where it really adds that extra bit of something to your lesson.

Calls can have up to 4 callers in 4 different locations but call quality will depend very much on your network and bandwidth like any other video conference call.

App Making at Key Stage 2 & 3

Many schools using the Rising Stars Scheme of Work also use the Blippit IO App Maker at Year 6.  The unique Blippit IO App Maker enables students to design, create and publish their own mobile apps under management and control of school as part of computing. Students make apps on any topic and stick to simple ‘drag and drop’ building or use introduce HTML5 as a mark up language or even Javascript.

Get a FREE UNIT OF WORK called 'The Code Less Travelled' now from the Blippit Resources Blog.  Apps work on any phone device and are shared in the Planet Blippit App Sharing Community at PlanetBlippit.com

The Blippit IO App Maker is designed for schools giving you all the bells and whistles you need to be creative, monitor progress in learning, deliver feedback to students directly via the App Maker Comms panel and be in control of what gets published and when.  

Using Blippit Blocks at Key Stage 2 & 3

Blippit Blocks is the latest addition to Blippit IO.  Designed to bridge the gap between graphical Block programming and text-based coding in Python.  Blippit Blocks uses the familiar 'Turtle' to help children to write and debug programs that accomplish specific goals, solve problems by decomposing them into smaller parts use sequence and repetition in programs.

Mathematical challenges can be created by teachers and given out to the whole class for debugging, extension and development.  All Blippit Blocks Projects can be exported to PureCode Python for more advanced text-based coding development if needed using the popular Python language.

Code using PureCode Python in the Cloud

If you can remember Logo and that programmable little Turtle that used to zip about the screen following your written instructions then  you’ll have a really good starting point with PureCode Python.  A Natural progression into text based coding following on from using Scratch,  use the ready-to-go templates all with full commentary and tasks to explore.  Or create your own project templates in PureCode Python for your own student groups who can open and work on them from anywhere anytime.   Students can share and learn from each other's projects as well as download their code locally to use however they like. 

Web Video Conferencing made safe & simple at last

FREE to Blippit IO school users!  Blippit IO Spotlight is safe because it’s teacher-managed and designed to help school reach out and connect as it might if Skype wasn’t blocked or open to safeguarding concerns.  The teacher can set up an instant or scheduled face-to-face video call for up to four connections.  Of course you’ll need to chat to share web links easily and quickly as well as super fast file sharing too.  The teacher can see who is online at any given moment and invite other ’live’ users at their school into a mentoring or tutorial session on demand.  The teacher can also invite in external experts or guests who don't have an account in Blippit IO for that ‘real world’ input or audience factor anywhere in the world.
