How I Use It
When students work to build computational thinking skills, I give them a choice of programs. Kodable is one of the most popular choice. Students are able to understand patterns, loops, and other programming strategies when they solve these challenges. The colorful characters are great motivation to take on new challenges.
My Take
When student accounts are set up on the teacher dashboard, a link is generated to the class and students are able to access their accounts with ease. They can move through the challenges at their own pace. Since the platform is web based, they can access Kodable from any connected device. Student develop confidence as they progress through the Kodable challenges.
