EDUCATIONAL CONTENT:

codeSpark Academy is inspired by visual programming languages such as Scratch from MIT, Alice from Carnegie Mellon University and other ‘beginner’ programming languages like Logo, SmallTalk, and Squeak.

Our word-free interface allows anyone, anywhere to play. They’ll master core computer science concepts such as pattern recognition, problem solving, sequencing, algorithmic thinking, debugging, loops and conditionals.

Our Game Maker allows kids to put programming concepts to work by designing and coding video games. Creations can then be played and remixed by other coders around the globe.

ノリノリさ ,

子供は楽しんでいました。

5歳の息子は楽しんで遊んでいました。一緒にやったりして、継続させようと誘導しましたが、一ヶ月で興味なくなったので解約しました。解約が難しいというコメントもありますが、アイフォンの 設定から、他のアプリと同様の方法で退会出来ます。退会方法が英語でビビりますが、アイフォンの退会方法を参照下さいと書いてあるだけです。他の有料型アプリと同じなので、ネットで検索すれば退会のやり方が出てきます。

お試し注意です

軽い気持ちでお試しをして、1週間たつ前にアプリを削除しました。
が、1ヶ月分引き落とされてしまいました。
こちらの知識不足かも知れませんが、アプリ削除=退会と思っていました。
これから試す方は注意して下さい。

また、入会までの流れは、流暢な日本語で進んでいくので、安心しきってましたが、退会の仕方を調べようと、注意事項的な案内を開くと、英語表記。
退会を進める画面になる、なぜか急に日本語がたどたどしくなる。。
といった、なんだかちょっと、健全な会社のやり口ではないように感じました。

肝心な、プログラミング教育に利用するならどうかの感想については、親自身も素人なので、まだ良し悪しの判断がつきません。

良い(Good!)

コードスパークはとっても大人でも楽しめるアプリで、でも毎月1000円ていうのはとても高かったです。
