There's a lot that students can do on here. They can pick characters. Set music to a scene. Choose backgrounds. Add audio. The programming is easy. It's like fitting puzzle pieces together. What I liked about is that it lets you make mistakes and put puzzles in places that don't make sense BUT it just won't work. So the student isn't mindlessly letting the program tell them, this doesn't work here. They have to figure out what doesn't work on their own.
There are plenty of online tutorials to help you out.
