I'm going to recommend Scratch. Scratch is a free program that is specifically designed to do what you are looking for: teaching kids the concepts of programming in an easy way without making them worry about learning syntax. Scratch is programmed in a drag-and-drop interface. The commands are all color coded by type, and are shaped in a way that they ...

I think that Moodle is a great option. You can create online courses and give access only to your students. Features such as badges are also available. I have used it as a student and not as a teacher. I cannot answer if it is easy to moderate it, but I think that I am enthusiast about it from the part of studying with it. On the main site, you will find ...

DragonBox helps children learn algebra using a very novel technique. It comes in 2 versions: a 5+ and a 12+ version. I've only bought the 5+ version, not the 12+ version, so can't comment on the latter. But the 5+ version definitely helps you learn basic algebra concepts by pattern-matching, and I've found it to be a very cool concept. (You may not get far ...

Try Scratch. Don't start from the first with C++, BASIC. It's not very easy to learn especially for a kid. With Scratch, you can program your own interactive stories, games, and animations — and share your creations with others in the online community. Scratch helps young people learn to think creatively, reason systematically, and work ...

You can use Open edX: free and open source MOOC plateform used by many universities I guess that they might be interested in some gamification mode, but so far there is none.

Here is another online Logo available at https://vrmath2.net/VRM2. I hope the 3D Turtle is good looking enough. If not, it can be changed to a fish or airplane.

For Logo files, please open in Logo Editor (from Window menu, or click on the ...

Oh, ow: no ox? On a Linux system, it's standard to have a text file containing a list of English words, for the use of applications such as spell checkers. (Some spell checkers have their own list in a format that they can search faster than plain text.) A typical location is /usr/share/dict/words or /usr/share/misc/words or /usr/lib/dict/words or some such....

I'd recommend Canvas. Canvas is a learning management system that supports most of the features that you have noted in your post. It supports online assignments (from paper submissions to simple text to file upload to online quizzes), attendance features including tracking absence and tardiness, and (AFAIK) allowing parents to subscribe to attendance ...

Moodle would be the software of your choice. Most online course creators/educators use Moodle recently, and has been evolving pretty fast. It also has a large community.

Greenfoot, Scratch, and Codecademy are good options. It really depends how advanced your student(s) is/are. Scratch is good for young students to first get involved in programming. It teaches basic programming concepts in a simple, block based, way. It can be used to make almost any type of 2d project relatively simply. Although scratch is simple and ...

I really do not know if that age is suitable for learning programming. Smart is totally subjective. At that age, some exercises could be logical, sequences. For example on the rabbit and the turtle story, what was first, the starting of the race or the rabbit is sleep? What is the consequences of that event? Logic is an important part of programming. He ...

I'd like to recommend the python LOGO module - turtle (part of the standard library, and thus pre-installed on most linux distros). I suppose it's best suited for the older kids, but (in my opinion) it's much more gratifying than scratch or the like, since it's a real programming language. After teaching programming basics using turtle, you can naturally ...

You could also try Netlogo - it is more a modeling environment and quite advanced actually. However simple models contain few GUI elements and very few lines of code. It is free and probably open source. Needs Java. Simple models could be used to explained to kids. And Netlogo puts a focus on documentation. The downside is that the teacher needs to be an ...
