A product of Microsoft FUSE Labs, Kodu is a visual programming language made especially for creating games. Kodu’s language is entirely icon-based and is fairly easy to learn. By getting children to think about “if/then” statements, Kudo helps teach important programming concepts of actions and conditions. The Kodu Classroom Kit is a set of lesson plans and activities for teachers, after-school program instructors and administrators to run a variety of types of classes using Kodu. The entire kit can be downloaded, free of charge, in a zip file or as single lesson plans.
