How I Use It
Kindergarten students were using this to practice coding. It was much easier for them to use it than their website since with the iPads they could touch the screen and slide the blocks. Dragging blocks on the website proved to be a difficult task for some students. The concepts are clear and the lessons are engaging and fun.
My Take
I think it's an excellent app. It gives students a different way to move the coding blocks. Personally I wish it was free. There are online resources that are free, and I really wish this was one of them.
