eBook Title: Hopscotch Challenges: Learn to Code on an iPad!
Author: Dr. Wesley Fryer
Version: 1.3 (last updated 30 Nov 2013)
This is an eBook of challenges for students to complete using the free iPad app, Hopscotch. Hopscotch can be used to introduce students to basic concepts of software coding and computational thinking, since it uses a “block based” programming language similar to “Scratch software from MIT. (scratch.mit.edu) This eBook is an independent publication and is not an official curriculum resource of the Hopscotch development team. Download Hopscotch, access the official Hopscotch blog, and get more information about the app on www.gethopscotch.com. These challenges are designed for 9 – 11 year old students, but they may be fun and instructive for people of other ages too.
