I spent much of the day yesterday looking at their offerings and trying out many of the very easy to use programs:



As you can see, there is a range of coding languages and a full set of lesson plans for each year group.

There is also a pictogram, branching database and a full multi-user data base in with the data handling programs:



They also have painting, animation and word processing programs, help for web page making, blogging … and lots more!


One program I really liked was a tables competition – one could play against children from all around the world. My single game rendered me in place 10375; it may take a while to fight your way to the top!


There is a 30 day free trial of J2e and it is well worth looking at.
