How I Use It
I use this site with grades K-5 when introducing computer coding. Younger students with limited literacy skills can start with Light Bot, which is all icon based. Older students enjoy Light Bot as well, but can also try the Angry Birds coding game and move on to Scratch. Students loved solving the coding puzzles and quickly advanced through the levels.
My Take
This is an amazing teaching tool! Students can begin the lessons at school and continue them at home. The lessons are self paced and provide tutorials for students who need extra help.
