Hopscotch is a free iOS app that introduces students to programming logic. The app originally launched as an iPad-only app. Last week the developers released an iPhone-friendly version of the free app.
In Hopscotch students put command boxes into order to make cartoon avatars move and draw lines. Students can program one or all of the cartoon avatars to move and follow commands based on touch or on the movement of their iPads.
Applications for Education
Hopscotch was developed by the same people who developed Daisy the Dinosaur. Daisy the Dinosaur teaches kids younger than nine years old some basic programming logic. Using Hopscotch is a logical next step after completing the challenges in Daisy the Dinosaur.
