15 free games that will help you learn how to code | Games and education | Scoop.it


"Online learning has come a long way in the last few years.Flickr/Laurie Sullivan

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. "

Some good tips and advice.

Alex Hurtado's curator insight, September 23, 7:03 PM
In this post, we could see several things to consider at the time of implementing games for learning purpose. However, how appropriate is this option? Have you ever considered the pros and cons? As was mentioned before. There are important factors to take into account when one implements games. learning purpose, time of implementing and designing of the game. It is important that the game has a pedagogical purpose, sometimes we implement games just to get fun learners and it could lack of the learning purpose. Other thing is timing, if learners are taking so many time performing the game. It could not be so benefit for learners and teachers. because of planning the time should be balanced in the learning process. To carry out in a good way games, need a good design, purpose and also piloting it. Before learners playing it. I mean to know what I should improve, and which problems can emerge.
