So many great resources for teaching coding, its hard to keep up.

Here's one that takes on an innovative approach
Personalizing Learning with Coding your own Video Projects

They have great curriculum resources if you sign in as a teacher

If you sign in as a student there are "MORE UNLOCKED"  projects than if you
sign up as a teacher.

They are really tuned in with some of the trends that appeal to teens.
This summer my students CODED a PoKeMon Go  level
This Fall I noticed they had students coding a SnapChat Filter.

I heard that they are currently in discussions with WeVideo  - so for those
of us who have WeVideo licenses, we might want to stay tuned for that.

It's a Freemium type product -- so if there is interest going deeper than
the Free Version  - ping me
I'm meeting with them to look at piloting some ideas  for Vermont later
