How I Use It
I use it to teach coding vocabulary and practice the coding concepts. I also have gotten to the point where kids are making their own mazes and sharing them with the class! They love playing each other's mazes!
My Take
I love that the kids can make their own mazes. I love that it walks them through conditional practice as well as function practice. I wish more was free and that Kodable used advertising to make the money they needed. It is expensive for educators if you want the full version. How do ABC Mouse, Khan Academy, and Code.org make their resources free but still make money? Perhaps use their experience to make Kodable accecsible to all kids.
