Codeable Crafts
Rating

Kids can use Codeable Crafts to create simple animated stories. Give kids a general theme (for example, what did you do over the summer break?) and let them use their imaginations to create stories on that theme. Talk about storytelling, such as following a story arc and introducing characters. Kids can work on their language and verbal skills as they narrate their story. Save the stories and show them to the class. For a tech or computer class, Codeable Crafts can be a starter app for introducing programming. Carefully explain and explore what each coding block does, and give kids lots of room to experiment on their own.

Codingville
Rating

Codingville offers an easy and engaging way for students to learn coding/digital skills in a self-directed online environment.

Students and teachers will develop their coding/digital skills through Blockly coding. Blockly coding is a visual coding language where the user builds code by stacking ‘blocks’ together. These ‘blocks’ are chunks of code that can be translated into professional textual code, which is JavaScript. Students will learn how to code by using Blockly in a series of ‘Journeys’. Each journey culminates with a capstone project, and a final project that focuses on developing a web app. A journey is approximately 21 hours of content and is differentiated into specific grade groupings and skill sets: Grades 1-3 students, Grades 4-6 students and Grades 7-12 (middle/high school).
