What is the paid schools version of Hopscotch?

To get the full Hopscotch experience, we recommend you upgrade to our paid version (at a substantial discount to list price).

The paid version includes:

  • A teacher dashboard to view and control student accounts, which means easier control of classrooms.

  • Access to the full library of 60+ hours of self-paced coding tutorials; great for differentiated learning.

  • Ability to import custom art and images; great for using Hopscotch in disciplines outside of technology class.

  • Ability to generate custom names and passwords
