NEW Version of Rainforest Coding

We are super excited to announce the latest version of Rainforest Coding! The popular coding solution now includes new and updated features to improve ease of use and enjoyment. Here are the key new features to look out for in Version 2:

Teacher View

As well as one login for all students, schools will receive one login for all staff, giving them access to the synchronised and easy to use teacher view. Here you can simply list users and then track the progress of entire classes and individual students. Student progress reports show the specific coding skills achieved during each activity, and can be downloaded and printed.

Progress Tracking

Students can easily keep track of their own progress when they login to play Rainforest Coding. They can access their individual progress report, showing them what they have achieved and the skills they have gained so far. Students will also find "done" ticks next to the activities they have completed and "do next" prompts to show them where they left off.
