How I Use It
I used Tickle with students in math class. They programmed Ollie (sphero) to create shapes based on interior and exterior angles. It is a great way to combine math curriculum and some basic coding. Very engaging for students.
My Take
This is a GREAT app for combining basic coding and robots or physical things! Very engaging for students while ensuring the learning is authentic.
