Tweets of the Week

Another great video of students teaching students how to Tynker…in Tynker!

Nice! These kids are learning about food chains in Tynker.

Drone tricks are always fun to see!

Cool to see the Tynker app onscreen at the WWDC keynote!

These kids look pretty focused on learning to program drones.

This teacher said her students “love the programming games on Tynker!”

On the Blog

This week, we posted an article about Featured Maker Hannah, as well as about Sid and Darsh. Hannah codes for causes she cares about, and hopes to create projects and tools for differently-abled children! Sid and Darsh used to compete with code, but now they collaborate – and the results are great. “We’re sharing ideas. We challenge each other.” 

We also posted this article outlining a few ways parents can get involved in their child’s education. Suggestions include unplugging together, setting clear goals, and more.

This post about Tynker at ISTE went live this week as well. Check it out!

 

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.
