Crack the Code - Learn Coding through Play

Through a series of non-tech games, help children learn why coding works. Two first grade teachers share their journey of experimentation and play with coding, and how they empowered students to collaborate and take risks before trying out their problem solving skills on iPad games, such as Scratch Jr. and Lightbot. Along the way, students reflected on their learning in their Think Books or by recording their thoughts in videos.
