Pros: No coding experience required. Great curriculum structure and support.
Cons: No choices in the game's narrative. Puzzles are a lot like other coding games.
Bottom Line: This is a program that merges games and computer science, and gives you all the tools you need to teach -- even without coding experience.
How Can I Teach with This Tool?
To get started, teachers should consult the excellent lesson slides; chapter one is available for free. The slides include pacing suggestions, including when to start and stop gameplay, how to incorporate the cutscenes in instruction, and check-in and extension opportunities. Throughout, there's also a lot of great info about computer science concepts that'll help students understand things like algorithms, loops, and debugging. There's also a healthy focus on SEL, encouraging students to develop resiliency and integrity when working on a project. These slides will give you the best notion of just what's covered in the game, then you can try the first chapter and see if it'll meet your students' needs.
