How I Use It
Light-bot is a very good way to introduce coding and computer programming to children. The platform is set as a game which is highly engaging. My students were able to program a robot with a series of commands which increased in difficulty as the activity progressed. This app fosters higher level thinking with a fun, light aspect to it.
As a teaching tool, I would recommend Light-Bot to be used in the classroom. I used it with my Technology students 2-5. There are different levels which allows for multiple entry points and differentiation. On the downside, my students were not able to create an account and save their work. It would be nice if the students were able to save their progress and continue their work at a later date.
