How I Use It
I would feel confident using this program in my teaching as it manages to teach kids without making them feel like they're still in a classroom. The new coding addition adds an additional STEM factor, which will encourage a new generation of programmers, engineers and architects.
My Take
This is a sufficient supplemental tool in teaching and should be used in tandem with lessons. It is a great community building program and gives students a feeling of independence and importance.
