How I Use It
A group of my students used this during our 20% Genius Hour. They created awesome projects and were able to successful share their knowledge and product with the class. They used this app to build many different types of apps. What is cool is this app can be used on phone or computer because of its live connection.
My Take
I think is this a wonderful app. It allows for structure and creativity. It is the perfect tool for students that are interesting in programming and developing career skills. I like this app because it is not limited to the construction of simple apps. Students and teachers can built apps. You do not have to be a professional developer to effectively use this app. You are not writing code, you visually design the way the app looks and use blocks to specify the app's behavior.
