Digital Schoolhouse Tutorial Video: Alternatives to Beebots and Probots

This video tutorial from Digital Schoolhouse shows you how to create your own Beebots and Probots.

The Digital Schoolhouse is a primary to secondary school transition project established at Langley Grammar School in Slough, Berkshire. The project provides a colleciton of online resources and lesson plans for ICT and Computing educators working with primary and secondary school pupils (ages 8-14) in the UK. Now anyone can access the Scratch tutorial videos and worksheets for free.

Alternatives to Beebots and Probots
Following a request from a local primary school we have created a series of tutorial videos for using Scratch instead of Beebots and Probots. We would of course recommend that you invest in a set of Beebots and Probots but if finances are limited then something is better than nothing. These videos are designed to be an aid to teachers to prepare Computer Science lessons in Key Stage 1 (ages 5 & 6) and lower Key Stage 2 (ages 7 & 8), they are not intended to be used with a class of students.
