How I Use It
As a technology teacher I use this website as a supplemental practice after doing an hour of code with the students to give them a deeper understanding of coding and what they can do on their own. This website gives them creative license to create apps and programs that they an share with each other and the public.
My Take
Although this website can be frustrating to emergent learners who may need more individual assistance, It is a great way to get students excited about computer science. The website allows students to have ownership over the outcome of their project and is a wonderful lesson in trial and error. The website is self-paced so that you can have learners of all levels working at once and give attention to those students who need more assistance.
