Hopscotch is a shockingly simple and comprehensive app that allows students to experience writing code and programming on the iPad. Chances are that if you look over a student’s shoulder who is using Hopscotch, you might think they were just playing a game. However, it is more likely they wrote the game! The Hopscotch website has a curriculum guide with tons of lessons to get kids interested in programming. Although many of our students are finding Hopscotch themselves, students may have a more powerful experience after exposure to the curriculum and project ideas available on the website. Give Hopscotch a try right here. Load the app on to your iPad and follow the instructions linked here. It is a video tutorial that will turn your iPad into an Etch-o-sketch! Try it on your own or share the video with your class. You will be surprised how easy it is to program tools, games, drawings, and even stories using Hopscotch.
