Coding Fun with Hopscotch for iPad
Hopscotch is a free iPad app which can be used to introduce students to basic concepts of software coding and computational thinking, since it uses a “block based” programming language similar to “Scratch software from MIT. (scratch.mit.edu) In this session we'll explore several techniques using the free 2013 eBook by Dr Wesley Fryer, "Hopscotch Challenges: Learn to Code on an iPad!" which enable students to create simple "collide games" on the iPad as well as mathematical art drawings. Learn how your students can begin developing their coding, computational thinking, and problem solving skills using Hopscotch for iPad!
