How I Use It
My students are assigned the lessons and they work at their own pace. My students work through the 20 hour course first and then they are able to explore and let their creativity run free. I begin with my Kindergarten students using this program. They have loved coding. For me, I actually went through the courses as well so that when they got stuck I could provide better support and instruction. Especially for my struggling learners.
My Take
My students love coding. Our students are digital natives and this site is great for extending their grasp on the technological world. This site incorporates the games they are already interested in and expands on their learning of how and what goes into the making of the game.
