How I Use It
As the media technology teacher at my school, I wanted to introduce my young students (K-1) to coding with simple concepts. As the intro to Kodable is free, I set up classrooms and in the introduction to Kodable lesson. After that, I let students work at their own pace, supporting as needed.
My Take
The features are quite limited, but there is a good introduction to material. The new "hour of code" section, while not an hour, does give students a little taste. It is good for a little peek into the world of coding, but with so many other free options available, I wouldn't purchase the full content. The classroom set up was easy and the kids could quickly and easily find their profiles.
