My Take

This is the absolute best of the best for introductory programming on the middle or high school level. The tools are visual, but also carry references the programming language. I can't recommend this highly enough.

How I Use It

I use this tool with a robotics club. We use it to teach introductory programming to students with no experience whatsoever. It introduces a wide variety of computer programming logic with a series of tutorials to give students a foothold with their new skills. After students learn the introductory skills, they can create apps on their own - limited only by their own creativity - and can load them onto their android phones using QR codes or usb cables.
