I have already tried visual programming, Daisy Dinosaur, Scratch Jr, Scratch and Code.org and can't get enough of it. So I have tried a variety of different ways for the children to pair program, the most popular one is
1. Buddy class. The older children take the drivers seat and the younger children are the navigators. The older children have been very patient and have also learnt from the younger children.
2. Videoing the lesson with Ipad. One child does the programming e.g Scratch Jr and the other videos what they are doing. At the end of the task they sit down and discuss if anything could have been done better whilst watching the video and what they would change. Then in the next lesson they swap roles.
