How I Use It
Code.org is a great site to help students of all abilities to learn how to code. There are lessons that you can do "unplugged" which is without any technology. The students can progress at their own level or stay as a class. This worked really well for the computer lab setting.
My Take
I fell that my students were able to build their higher order thinking skills and problem solving skills with Code.org. There was real-world application for the students also, which was great for them.
