How I Use It
I used the free levels with my students in 2nd and 3rd grade. I modeled the first few levels on the SmartBoard and then they moved to their computers and worked either independently or in paired programming.
My Take
Overall this is a great product and addition to the coding for kids sites that are being create and released. I like that it uses more than just drag and drop programming for the students, showing them that spelling and syntax matter in coding just like in writing.
