Second Graders Code with Hopscotch

This morning in the AT&T Classroom the second graders had their third coding lesson and were introduced to Hopscotch, an iOS app designed to teach children the basic elements of coding and programming. By manipulating simple drag and drop blocks, Hopscotch introduces young children to fundamental programming concepts such as sequencing, abstraction, values and conditionals. The app allows children to sequence code to create simple games, animations, and art.  Today the second graders worked with the app as a group to progress through the app’s coding levels to create increasingly more complex movements, animations and games.
