How I Use It
I am using Scratch Jr. as part of an after school enrichment program. Students will use the knowledge they are gaining from Scratch Jr. to move on to writing code. Students have found it easy to understand and are quick to learn on their own as well as with teacher support. The interface is kid friendly and has support for teachers with helpful lessons.
My Take
I have enjoyed using this app. I like that my students are excited to learn about coding and that they have confidence to try new things within the app. It will help students by building their confidence in computer science, empowering their creativity and helping students to become problem solvers.
