Thunkable

Thunkable is an introduction to app building that creates a segue from introduction to coding programs that teach block-based coding into a project-based program that creates a finished app.

This resource could be used in several ways. It can be an introduction to app development. Teens can imagine and design new apps. They can also recreate apps they like and/or already use in a “break apart mode” where they can get an idea of how that app runs and what functions it uses to work. It can also be a component of a larger program in which an app accompanies the project or focus of that program.
