Tools of the Trade
What kind of teaching tools do we use at the Brainery? From Khan Academy to Blockly, we use a variety of learning tech.
Blockly: Blockly is a visual coding language, created by Google. It is a nice, gentle introduction to coding (especially for the artistic types!) because you can create real programs by manipulating visual code pieces. It’s a lot like an interactive puzzle!
Hackety Hack: Hackety Hack is an environment to learn Ruby, a coding language that can be used to create desktop applications, websites and more.
Scratch: Scratch, created by MIT, is very similar to Blockly (a visual coding language) but offers a collaborative environment. Scratch allows you to create music, animations and games.
