How I Use It
I introduced this site to one student in my programming class because he was constantly getting on his phone to play Clash of Clans. He immediately took to it, because of the similar look and feel. Then the other students saw what he was doing and wanted to do it too. I introduced it to the rest of the class and now they are all working at programming. This is amazing.
My Take
This site is amazing. Paired with keyboarding so the students can type faster, they are learning a lot. I like that they can choose the language they want to program in and that they advance at their own pace.
