7 Fun and Creative Apps and Websites That Teach Kids to Code — Emerging Education Technologies

7 Fun and Creative Apps and Websites That Teach Kids to Code — Emerging Education Technologies | coding | Scoop.it
Computer coding is becoming an increasingly popular activity for today’s technology oriented kids. Even kids who do not plan to grow up and become computer programmers are enjoying the control and autonomy that coding delivers.

Coding encourages kids to be creative, think logically and develop critical thinking skills that they will need throughout their lives.

The skills young students develop through these early coding experiences can also help them to succeed in their education. With coding, kids get to try out new solutions to problems and tinker around with what can happen in various situations. The following seven visually oriented and child-friendly apps can help to teach even the youngest children how to code.

Choosing an app is not a simple task. You need to consider the platform (iPad, Chromebook, Laptop) as well as corporate restrictions (proxies, transparent proxies). Not an easy task in the end!

Official Website of Root | The robot that brings code to life

Official Website of Root | The robot that brings code to life | coding | Scoop.it
Root is designed to fit into every classroom. The robot operates on the whiteboard that's already at the front of the room and has the attention of the class. Coding with Root requires no special setup. Unlike structured websites that teach coding as an individual activity based on exercises with unique solutions, the classroom environment with shared robots provides opportunities for social learning and more freeform creativity. Coding with robots is an inherently dynamic experience; robot, environment, and students all react to each other, stimulating students to come up with diverse solutions and challenges together. People love robots—they have a powerful appeal to all ages and demographics, making interactions and relationships with them far more compelling than images confined to a computer screen.
