Coding through Gaming
Scottie Go! DOJO
Coding as a second language
Learning coding does not have to be complicated - it can start at any age! One of the best ways we've found to introduce coding is through gaming. It keeps the child engaged while still teaching them the foundations of this essential skill.
This week, we're exploring coding through gaming with our partners at Scottie Go! They're offering our TechTerra readers an exclusive free sample of their latest product, Scottie Go! DOJO.
What is Scottie Go?
Users create a code for Scottie to follow, using tangible real-life coding pieces, scan the code with a connected device and watch Scottie enact their code on screen. The levels vary from easy to difficult. Scottie Go! is a great tool for learners across ages.
Scottie Go! DOJO Free Sample
Scottie Go! DOJO was created for use in schools alongside their full line of Scottie Go! products. There are currently three Scottie Go! products available for purchase: Scottie Go! EDU for students grades 3rd-12th (featured in the video), Scottie Go! Basic for younger learners, and Scottie Go! Magnetic tiles best suited for group learning situations.
