I had a few students today working in their blockly coding that were interested in the Java behind it. While they would definitely do well to take online courses in Java, both myself and the students were wondering if there is a way to see the java that goes into each block. (Essentially a translator?) So they can start to see the language and understand how it works in the system.
Any way to make this happen? It would be a great learning tool for beginners.
A simulator is also integrated.
Thanks, @Daniel_Pers I saw that on your previous example and it looks interesting. I think it will be especially helpful in testing ideas as I may be shifting to robotics next year at the Middle Schools level. I will be playing with that some more, and the moving parts functions that create some of your examples on CoSpaces as well.
the idea is interesting and it makes sense at first. However, there are some issues.
I wasn’t sure how the blocks would translate, but that makes sense. I just recall seeing it a lot with the code.org activities, but those being predeveloped for a “correct sequence” means they already know what the java should actually look like and thus make the shift.
Thank you for explaining it though.
