As always, we’re excited to share the best of the Tynker community with you! We saw some amazing projects, including a quiz inspired by Harry Potter, a brand new talk show, and a new take on everyday life. We also saw lots of fantastic tweets – kids (and teachers!) are having a great time coding with Tynker. Have fun playing through these awesome games, and don’t forget to tweet us about your classroom’s coding sessions!

Tweets of the week:

This principal played these students’ Tynker games. Such great encouragement for the kids!

Loved this tweet – “Dad, can I work on my coding?” 

Great to see students using our MLK timeline activity!

According to this first grade teacher, Tynker is helping her students realize the importance of coding!

On the Blog:

We published a great article about leveraging screen time for learning. Tips include blending learning and fun, distinguishing between playing and making, and looking to the future. We also posted about FETC 2018 – educators, don’t miss our booth if you’re attending!

Our two Featured makers this week were Eli and Kenisha. Eli was drawn to Tynker for our Minecraft capability, then fell in love with creating games. Now, coding is one of his favorite hobbies – he’s shifted from a player to a maker! Kenisha has made dozens of really well drawn projects, and has even started taking game requests from her friends.

 

Keep contributing to the Tynker community! Parents and teachers can connect with us on Twitter, Facebook, Instagram, and the Tynker Community Forum. Kids can start learning to code and creating for free with the Tynker app for iPads and Android tablets or by playing our Hour of Code activities!

Tynker enables children to learn computer programming in a fun and imaginative way. More than 60 million kids worldwide have started learning to code using Tynker.
