How I Use It
Kodable is a great solution for integrating computer science across multiple content areas. If you have a technology, STEM or similar class it should be part of the core curriculum. For everyone else looking to include computer science as part of their teaching you can find lessons that tie-in with the overall subject area or specific content that will be enhanced by their lessons. Please look over the curriculum component to see the big picture covered in lessons. Using the app for free play barely scratches the surface of all that is available through Kodable now.
My Take
If you have not taken a look at Kodable for computer science integration then you're missing out! The curriculum has continued to grow and improve over the years. The material is very accessible for teachers and highly engaging for students. They will absolutely love the fuzzFamily. Consider the ELA lessons that weave in the story of the fuzzFamily both to introduce them initially and to continue learning and growing as they evolve. There are few programs that impress me as much as Kodable does when it comes to a complete solution for computer science curriculum in schools. A top choice for schools to consider investing in along with teacher training.
