How I Use It
I use codeSpark to teach coding to K-2 learners in the media center. I use their lessons to introduce (or expand) their knowledge in coding and students do the "fun" part in applying the knowledge they just learned.
My Take
I like using codeSpark because of the simplicity in the lessons. It's easy to understand the lesson and all the materials (the slides) are already created so I can just download to my Google Drive and go! I also like the fact that I can limit the stages that students can go in when doing individual work. That way, they can focus on the objective of the lesson. The app is very appealing to younger students and it's very user friendly!
