Hopscotch iPad app looks to teach building blocks of coding to girls

Hopscotch iPad app looks to teach building blocks of coding to girls | 21st Century Classroom - Peel 21st | Scoop.it
Rather than making young people wade through incomprehensible strings of words and numbers, writing code in Hopscotch consists of dragging and dropping different cute characters and running scripts on them.

This free app for the iPad will help students learn how to code! It is geared to students between the ages of 8 and 12. Using drag and drop students should be able to create games and animations. 

A ongoing debate in education is around the issue of teaching programming to students. This app may provide opportunities for students to begin to explore the concept of programming easily.

Another programme to make coding accessible.

Here's something we need most even more than algebra. Girls and Boys that can code are in high demand for awhile.
