Last week my grade 1/2 class participated in the Hour of Code and absolutely loved it! Your browser does not support the video tag
My students were engaged and excited as you can see from the video above. They were collaborating, thinking critically, and solving problems in a fun and interactive way.
Becky Versteeg wrote a post about her students’ experiences with the Hour of Code. If you missed it you can check it out here.
My students had the choice of which apps they wanted to try. These were our favourites: Lightbot, CargoBot, Kodable, Daisy the Dinosaur, and the Foos.
I thought it might be helpful to share a list of coding apps that students can use to help them learn the basics of coding.
Below is a visual of coding apps I found on the site: Educational Technology and Mobile Learning. Click on the link above to read the post which includes a brief description of each app shown in the visual below.
Did your class get involved? If so, what apps or websites were your students using? What kind of learning did you see as a result of the experience?
As always, I hope you will share your learning here!
