How I Use It
I have a first grade computer science class of 13 children for 30 minutes. I wanted an iPad program with quick minimum set up that was engaging for the children. To save time, Iong on for the children though it was easy enough for them to do it themselves. They get right to work and love it! I monitor their progress online and try to sit them near children that could help one another. This program is very user friendly and requires very little explanation. This works for us because I have such a short time with them. Usually I walk around the room and help where needed.
My Take
I find Kodable great! I love how I can track their progress on line. The children absolutely love the imagery and the cute "fuzzballs". I feel this a great intro to coding for the 1st graders. It is not clunky or glitchy. I really hope my admin lets me purchase more lessons!
