How I Use It
The students in my classes love Codespark. I start using it in first grade and continue it in second grade. My third graders beg to use it all over again. It is great for teaching coding skills. The educator resources are amazing. I use the resources to help write my lesson plans. No need to reinvent the wheel! These are perfect. The students use chromebooks to access their own accounts. It couldnt be easier in terms of set up.
My Take
Codespark is an excellent learning tool to teach coding. The off line activities are well thought out and engangng. The coding levels are age appropriate and my students can't get enough of it. And now that you can create a story, my students are coding their own stories in addition to games. The only thing I would love to see is a way to share their games and stories off line.
