How I Use It
I have had allmy students participate in Hour of Code activities and this year have all my students enrolled in Code Studio. What I love is that it is all individualized and runs at the student's pace. I have students that have moved through the courses quickly and have moved into other courses. I love that code.org has links to other coding websites and that the activities appeal to current cultural events (Star Wars, Frozen) and that there is a variety.
My Take
I love everything about what code.org has put out. It has inspired my students and have given them a sense of control. My students come from a high poverty area and giving them the tools to learn how to code gives them hope for the future.
