How I Use It
I used codeSpark with my 2nd graders last year as an end of year coding activity. The students enjoyed the app and stayed engaged in the learning activities. I plan to use codeSpark this year with my 3rd and 4th graders starting at the beginning of the year.
My Take
I believe this is going to be a GREAT experience for my STEM students. I would like to see coding involved in all aspects of the codeSpark experience. I would like to see an app for chromebooks as I am a 1:1 chromebook school.
