Visual Programming- Blockly

I have experience with coding using a few different programs however I haven't really used Blockly before. I had a go at both the Maze and Turtle Challenges and found it was a great way to practise decisions and loops. Some of the levels were quite challenging and required some debugging to get right. This would be a great task to practise directions and/or angles the classroom, particularly with the Turtle challenge as you need to know the size of angles to get the lines in the correct spots.

  • Rebecca Vivian: You make a good point on some of the puzzles being challenging and require debugging. We do need to select activities that challenge students! If they were too easy, then they wouldn’t get any chance to practice debugging skills!
