I installed Kodu a few weeks ago, just put a brief note on out Intranet, and left them to it. Some of them are developing their own games now with no input from me or teachers. Great!

I'm thinking of doing an informal after-school programming club with things like this. I've just bought my 9-year-old son an old Lego Mindstorms RCX robotics set. After 2 days he's already programming in C. It's amazing what they can do if they're left to it.
I suppose it's no different from us playing with Speccy code or Amiga code back in the day... just that we didn't have much else to do on the machines at the time, so now we need to find ways of convincing kids that programming is more fun than another crappy Flash game :)
