Step by Step - and Side by Side - Very Inspiring
This has been an excellent app on coding to explore with our 7 year old son. It is friendly and encouraging. There are many resources that Hopscotch has created to teach children and to guide educators.
I downloaded the "educators" information to learn the steps to introduce our son to coding. I couldn't quite believe it when the "Quickstart Guide" suggested the mindset: "Let the kids
become the experts, and marvel at what they create." Yet, after the first lesson, our son wanted to spend time coding up a silly animation based on the principles and techniques he learned in the first introductory tutorial. His interest and skills have grown from there.
I am delighted to have found an app that creatively teaches coding with simple, step-by-step instructions that our son and I can follow while sitting on the couch, side-by-side.
