How I Use It
I used this app as an introduction to coding with 4th grade students. The immediate engagement shown by all students was amazing. I love how they are forced to consider conditionals and variables in the thinking process. This app truly teaches students how to think in different ways.
My Take
I feel this app has a lot of value in education. The thinking involved in coding and using this app is so valuable. Students are forced out of their comfort zone to consider possibilities as they think through the process to get the desired outcome.
