How I Use It
I use this app with a video adapter with my Smartboard. I use it to introduce the Java programming logic to students as young as first grade. I have used it all grades 1-6.
I use it in conjunction with the Board Game Robot Turtles. We learn as a group with the app then they move to small groups playing the programming board game Robot Turtles.
I am trying to plan more lessons that introduce programming logic and higher order thinking in the technology classroom. Move the Turtle is one of my GO TO apps for this purpose. The kids seem to like it . From the the very young to the middle school students, when I use this app, there is a positive learning experience.
