GiiLD Beginner Challenges
In the spirit of project-based learning, Challenges replace courses. We have designed three new Challenges to inspire your kids to learn to program. Don't worry, you don't have to know anything about programming - GiiLD will enable the learning process with your student-learners. The three Challenges we are highlighting right now are:
PhotoStory - a personal story with pictures
PhotoStory to Image Gallery (a follow up to the first PhotoStory Challenge)
Draw pictures with Logo
By replacing courses with custom Challenges, we are emphasizing a project-based approach.
By encouraging students to figure out the "next steps" we are encouraging a totally personalize learning model.
The GiiLD Groups allow parents to monitor each student's personal journey through their Challenges.
