Hack for play
HackforPlay is a role-playing game (RPG) that children can excite learning coding as if they are crazy about playing games.
Our challenges will be developed as learning environments for all beginners of programming based on a joint study “Learn of Programming for Beginners: A Survey and Taxonomy of Programming Learning Tool” with Prof. Hironori Washizaki and Prof. Daisuke Saito of the Institute of Global Software Engineering from Waseda University. The study covered 54materials to learn computational thinking or coding and shows each their characteristic.
