Sometimes it’s all about witnessing the “aha” moments.
Today in Makerspace class we were working on Code.org. I have several students that have learned the skills quickly and are working at levels far beyond their classmates.
One young woman spent today coding a Star Wars game, but she couldn’t quite get the code correct to get it to add up the score correctly while it was playing. She struggled with how to solve that step. We talked through possible solutions (I try to get the kids to figure it out, with guidance, rather than showing them the solution).
