Cool – this class used Tynker for a book report!
Third graders are using @GoTynker to create book reviews that use graphic organizers to show story elements. Their review will also provide a book recommendation for their peers. #TalawandaEmpowers #IntegratingSTEM pic.twitter.com/h5LxjOzgS3

This teacher teaches her students collaboration by having them code together in pairs.
One of my favorites: Pair Coding. Aside from collaboration, chn also practices communication skills to effectively problem solve together! Hitting multiple (life) skills simultaneously! #codingclub #Tynker #Coding pic.twitter.com/esSMHdHGAe

This week’s Featured Maker was Nathan. He’s a black belt, acts in commercials, and still manages to find time to excel with Tynker!
