How I Use It
Lightbot was used to promote higher-order thinking skills. The app can be used for students in 5th grade as well. Students often worked together to develop an understanding as the app got mor difficult.
My Take
If you are looking for a break from the everyday grind that math can become, lightbot is a greate coding game that allows students to have fun while still using skills that they need to use in math. Students were highly engaged and having a great time!
