The tools of this week are the various tools we have been using for coding aside from Code.org.
How does this relate to the classroom? Students are reading, sequencing, writing, scaling, counting, measuring, giving directions, following directions, and problem solving when they code. It’s not just a technology thing! Below you will see how I scaffolded coding at my school. In the end, it’s all coding. Please do not think these tools are exclusive to the grade I taught them too. Anybody can code using any tool. Explore them all!
