Create, Play, Learn.
The Hopscotch: Learn to Code app is a great addition to the technology (apps and websites) used to teach coding in the elementary and middle school classroom.
Students can sample what other kids are designing and play, from the screen, games that are designed by other app users.
Given the short video tutorials that appear in the upper right hand corner of the screen, allowing students to follow the step-by-step directions to create their own games or pause the video and catch up, designing games is really only a video away.
Students can also save their games so others have a chance to play.
Hopscotch follows from Daisy the Dinosaur, as another step in the coding process by Hopscotch Technologies.
The iTunes link says this app has been downloaded over 10 million times and I can see why. Download the free app and see how many games your students can design.
