How I Use It
I use Scratch to introduce students to coding. Students can drag and drop elements to create a game or action. It is easy to use and several resources are available to go along with teaching Scratch.
My Take
It allows students to work with coding and not be bogged down by the syntax of a programming language. Students are quickly able to complete lines of code that produce some kind of action. This gets them excited about coding and wanting to learn more.
