3 Incredible, Beautifully Designed Apps for Teaching Code

Code is becoming more popular in schools as young as elementary. Here are our picks for the best applications for teaching students how to code!

1. Hopscotch

Hopscotch (https://www.gethopscotch.com/) is a visual iOS app that translates code into images and buttons. A great intro to teaching kids the fundamentals of code, Hopscotch makes learning the basics fun and exciting through movable parts.

Hopscotch can be used to make common phone games with interactive, fun interfaces.

2. Codecademy

Codecademy is becoming more of a household name lately. Codecademy allows users to learn a plethora of different types of code, from computational to scripting languages. Aimed for both students and budding professionals, Codecademy boasts a track record of empowering people to professionally code.

Courses found on Codecademy include HTML/CSS, Sass, Javascript, Rails, AngularJS, ReactJS, Ruby on Rails, Git, SQL, and Python.

3. Encode

Designed for beginners a bit older than Hopscotch's audience, Encode (http://upskew.com/encode-android/) teaches students the basics of coding. Starting from basic things like numbers and strings, Encode covers more complex coding practices.

With more than 100,000 downloads and a 4.5+ star rating, Encode is more than a promising choice.
