Since I’m a few years beyond fourth grade at this point, it’s tough for me to approach these apps exactly as a child would. But I’ve never learned to code, so I can claim beginner status there. Hopscotch was definitely more challenging for me than Kodable was. But I learned more about actual coding from Hopscotch.
It's not surprising that the iPad should be the natural place for kids to learn programming concepts, but it's still funny how many people still say that tablets can't replace PCs in the classroom.
