15 free games that will help you learn how to code

15 free games that will help you learn how to code | Robotics and GBL Biosphere | Scoop.it
When I started learning to code, the options were limited—lots of books (not even e-books), some very basic online tutorials, and a whole lot of experimentation.

Online learning has come a long way in the last few years. There are interactive courses, tons of online tutorials, and one of my personal favorite ways to practice coding: games.

While a game alone probably isn’t going to teach you everything you need to know about coding, it can be a really incredible way to practice the skills you’re learning. It makes practice fun. And if you’re anything like me, you might suddenly realize you’ve spent the last four hours reinforcing your coding skills without even realizing it.

I’ve tried out some of the most entertaining and useful games for learning to code. Check out my favorites below.

Gamification, Game-based Learning, Serious Games: Any Difference?

Gamification, Game-based Learning, Serious Games: Any Difference? | Robotics and GBL Biosphere | Scoop.it

The success of games in the general marketplace has redefined expectations in the learning sphere, bringing with it a paradigm shift in design.


There seems to be three main reasons for the increase in gamification: marketplace forces, the connection between games and learning in children, and rising interest in games among adults.
