Description

Kodable is an award-winning coding curriculum for kids ages 4-10. Trusted by over 50% of US Elementary Schools, it teaches your kids everything they need to know about computer science, from zero to JavaScript - no experience required!

Watch as your child explores the universe of coding with their new friends - the fuzzFamily! Kodable lets your kids play and create their own games, and features content suitable for all age levels. Explore the technomazes of Smeeborg, the asteroid fields of Asteroidia, and the slime-infested plains of Bug World while learning important computer science concepts.

WHAT THEY LEARN

Kodable is features age-appropriate games and activities that transition your kids from learning how to think like a programmer all the way to writing real code using our custom, built-for-kids coding interface!

Concepts learned through the Kodable include:
- Sequence/ Order of operations
- Algorithmic operations
- Conditional logic statements
- Syntax
- Variables including Strings, Integers, and Arrays
- Object Oriented Programming
- Classes and Subclasses
- Properties
- Methods

EVEN MORE FOR TEACHERS (Common Core + CSTA Standards-Aligned)
Kodable for Teachers is the only complete K-5 curriculum taking students from learning to think like a programmer in Kindergarten to writing REAL JavaScript by 5th grade. No computer science knowledge required of teachers! It includes -
- Over 80 scripted, grab & go lesson plans
- Complete Scope and Sequence for each grade
- Hundreds of on-screen activities for students
- Roster Upload, Google Classroom, and Clever Login Integration


WHY CODE WITH KODABLE?
Even before your children can pronounce the word "algorithm" they have an astounding ability to learn how to use them. Today's best programmers fell in love with coding at a young age by experimenting with the concepts taught in Kodable. Understanding computer science empowers your child for the jobs of tomorrow, and expands your child's mind to solve problems today in more intelligent ways. Students also learn incredibly important ‘soft skills’ such as

- Problem solving skills
- Higher level thinking skills
- Collaboration skills
- Communication skills
- Critical thinking skills

What’s New

Version 10.4.2

Bug fixes and additional polish to the KODE interface.
In case you missed it. Our last update was the biggest update to Kodable since…Kodable!

INTRODUCING: KODE.
Our new system-wide interface that we like to call KODE, Short for Kid-Optimized Development Environment, reimagines how kids can write *real* code. It seamlessly blends actual, real-life code (JavaScript and Swift) with symbols, contextual hints, and even pictures, allowing even the youngest learners to start building. Kids can now use this interface in all areas of Kodable, from creative areas such as Fuzz Builder and Maze Maker, to entire games with Asteroidia and Bug World.

Smeeborg: All-new and All-AWESOME!
For the first time since we released the very first versions of Kodable in 2012 we've completely rebuilt the interface of our very first game - Smeeborg! With the help of thousands of kids over hours of live testing, it's now easier than ever to navigate even the trickiest of technomazes.

Kodable game

I really enjoy this game so far! It’s teaching my six year old daughter to use her critical thinking skills, memorization, and all helping her with her directions (up, down, left, right, etc.) she is also using her counting skills a little too, believe it or not! She and I have been playing this since I download this yesterday and we love! My mom even played and she was stumped on the ‘loops’ and my daughter explained to her how to play lol! Keep up the great work and I will be purchasing the full game!!!!

Disappointing cash grab

This learning tool was one of my daughter’s favorites. She had lots of fun collecting all the fuzzes. When she attempted to play it again she was extremely disappointed that all her progress was gone. Now instead of a couple of inexpensive lesson add ons I am confronted with a $60 purchase and that buys me, what, a year of your mediocre content? Infuriating. I’m not sure how you are convincing schools to buy in at that price, but if you somehow still believe you are having “a transformational effect on a child’s life - regardless of race, gender, or even economic background” you are fooling yourself. Disgusting.

Developer Response ,

Hello,
We're really sorry that you find our content mediocre. We really strive to make the best possible coding experience for kids that we can, and we've obviously failed your daughter in some way. In fact, we switched to this pricing model so that we could continue to support and grow Kodable to be not just the most fun coding tool your daughter uses, but the most fun game, period. We'd really love to hear more about where we've fallen short so that we can improve Kodable in the future. Maybe your daughter has some feedback that could help improve Kodable for the millions of kids around the world that use us today. Please email our founder, Jon, directly at jon@kodable.com, no need to go through a support system :)

Crashes ALL the time

Updated review:

1) after several months and several updates to the app, it continues to crash All The Time. The kids just yell out “Kodables crashed again” and restart, usually having lost some of their work. There is usually 5 minutes or so between crashes.

2) The app is very limited as to content. Both kids quickly finished all the puzzle levels, and there is nothing left to do but play the games (of dubious learning value). Please add more real content!
——-

I got this for my six-year-old. He got to the Asteroid level where he was changing parameters in games. The app crashes every time while he is working on a new game. It has also crashed playing bug world. Nice concept, but kids are not very tolerant of seeing their work disappear in a crash.

Developer Response ,

Hi Prefrontal Cortex,
It looks like you posted a similar review a little over a week ago which we replied to, but I don't think we were ever able to connect via our support channel at support@kodable.com? It sounds like something strange is going on with your child's profile, since we haven't been seeing the types of crashes you're describing. This is definitely not OK and we want to make things right, but we're limited in how much support we can offer via the App Store. Could you please email our CEO directly at jon@kodable.com so he can expedite a fix for you?
