Come explore the benefits of Glitch.com an online "code playground" as an code learning environment

In this session we'll create an online remix of a platform game built using the JavaScript game library Phaser.io. Together, we will explore the potential of these tools for learners and educators looking for a fun way to teach coding and game making.

We'll also share the benefits of killer webapps Glitch.com and Piskel, respectively an online code writing playground and pixel art editor. Together we have found they launch even beginner learners into immediate creativity and give instant feedback. This process is applicable beyond the setting of game making and may be especially useful as a gateway to more complex web development.
