Skill Struck is not only engaging for the students but it helps solve the issues of standard alignments for many administrators. It was the easiest implementation of a program.
At one point I found out one of my principals had been spending their own time building manual lessons for their teachers and I had to introduce them to Skill Struck. It’s been a lifesaver and has so much value.
I love that besides the work of getting my students on the platform, I have been able to step aside and learn from my students and have them teach me about CS
Having a mapped out, structured way to learn and experience the Computer Science curriculum really freed up time for me to give students one on one attention. It also gave me more opportunities to give the students additional programming assignments to help them understand the concepts better.
I have most liked that Skill Struck includes helpful videos in order to help us through the lesson. I also like that it has descriptive instructions and that we can use the site anytime even when we're not in school.
I can choose my own character to go on a puzzle adventure and when I get to the treasure, I like to celebrate and help my classmates figure it out.
