How I Use It
We used this app when we did a school-wide Hour of Code last year. I think it is a great app to introduce students to coding and is very engaging. Some of the other apps we tried were more complex and students became frustrated very quickly. This app did a good job of delivering bite size pieces of information while still allowing students to experience success within the activities.
My Take
This app is not as versatile as many of the other apps that I use in my classroom, but it is a great resource for introducing students to the concept of coding.
