Here is another great free guide from Apple specifically designed for teachers and educators. Hopscotch Lesson Ideas is a free guide available for free download in iTunes. And as I said in an earlier post, this work is part of Apple's "Apps in the Classroom" series whose aim is to provide teachers with ideas and tips on how to integrate apps into daily classroom instruction.

HopScotch Lesson Ideas features a set of activities and tutorials that you can use in class to teach students about coding and creative thinking. For those of you not yet familiar with HopScotch, this is among the most popular iPad apps for teaching kids to code. Hopscotch teaches kids to code using simple, intuitive building blocks. Kids can create games, animations and other programs in this colorful, interactive environment. Program your characters to move, draw, and collide with each other, and use shaking, tilting, or even shouting at the iPad to control them. Hopscotch was inspired by MIT’s Scratch and gives kids a creative way to learn the fundamentals of computer programming.
