How I Use It
I signed up all 4 of my Year 2 IT classes. They logged in with a class code and found their name. Then they worked at their own pace working their way through the assigned levels and activities. We only used it for a few weeks but they were so motivated to learn. The beginning was easy but once it got harder they learned that they had to think more and use what they had already learned to solve the problems. They all cheered when I said we were using today.
My Take
It is great teaching tool, or rather guided tool that takes the pressure off a teachers ability to teach code. it suites all levels and children can learn at their own pace.
