How I Use It
Code.org is a simple coding website that can be used with kids as young as 5. It is also challenging and engaging enough to be used all the way into adulthood. I would use this in my teaching of computer programing and basic direction following.
My Take
My overall opinion is that it is a great activity that can be used whole class, paired partnerships and individually.
