An Excellent App for Coding on a tablet
LightBot has been a great teaching tool for many years. It began as a Flash game in 2008 – but this newer version has been rebuilt for iOS and Android and offers an easy way for kids to learn concepts like loops, if-then statements, and the like without typing or coding.
“It’s the perfect way to let kids experience programming without sitting them in front of a wall of text,”
There are plenty of other games that aim to teach programming, life skills, and the like. However, Light – Bot is unique because it’s made by a student and already has a solid following in the Flash gaming world. It’s a fun little way to get your learn on, to be sure, and it’s quite a bit like the original kids language, LOGO.
