First timers welcome

You don't need to be a coder to teach kids to code

Play to your strengths

You’re a teacher, not a computer scientist. Model active learning by giving students a powerful tool and exploring together. The most successful teachers we've seen hand Hopscotch to their students and give them full responsibility for expertise.

love hopscotch

 
 
I am a 4th grade teacher who LOVES your app. Our students have been introduced to coding through it and I am impressed with the creativity they have shown and the skills they are building while creating projects.

— Kelley, 4th grade teacher

 
Thanks for a great product. I work in curriculum technology and love your app. I have been using it along with kodable, daisy the dinosaur, light bot, cargo bot and tynker for students in K-5 in our district. Once they get the hang of it, most of the kids love Hopscotch the most.

— Stuart, Technology Integrator

My students love working on this app and being able to code has given them a much better understanding of how computers work. Hopscotch has demystified the tech in their lives. Now, they look at something on the computer and say 'I could code that!'

— Jesse, 5th grade teacher

 
I got in a little trouble for the kids "not being able to put it down" in their regular classes. Thanks for that! I like having to defend individualized, differentiated, engaged and excited learning.
