How I Use It
I use this product to challenge students and show them ways they can create video games. There isn't a whole lot of curricular aspects to this, but I use it to help with problem-solving skills, higher-order thinking, video game design and the design process. I love this app and the possibilities that come with it. I was able to use this with students as young as 1st grade. The app was glitchy depending on the device used. Sometimes it was hard to scan the floors into the app. Some students accidentally wrote on the blue areas causing the app not to be able to recognize it.
My Take
Overall I lie this app. I wouldn't recommend it only because the company came out with a new app called Bloxels which has everything you ever wanted.
