Move The Turtle is an application that introduces the logic of coding to children and teenagers. When coding the turtle that appears on their screen, users also have the possibility to create their own drawings and graphical figures.
Move The Turtle is a very good application that introduces coding concepts to children. Using the basics of programming to code the turtle in the game, they will learn at the same time to create their own drawings and graphical figures.
The game is divided into two parts, with an instruction panel and a game board. These come in handy because they allow children to use the correct commands to move their turtle and complete their missions.
Move The Turtle is also interactive and encourages creativity. That’s why it is divided into several sections:
- The game section where they will learn the basics of programming.
- The “composing” section in which they can engage in creation
- The “projects” section where they will find works that are already programmed, and from which they will be able to learn and practice.
Move The Turtle differs from other coding applications because it allows players to keep a history of the code commands they have made. This means that your child will always be able to come back and see what he or she has done before.
Nevertheless, younger children will need help to better understand how the application works, since it is relatively subtle. For older children (pre-teens and teens), a little knowledge of English is necessary.
