Teachers can share projects with students as a Blippit IO Template Project for debugging, extension and development.  We’ve also added a special button that appears in Blippit Blocks Projects so you can export your Blocks code into Blippit IO PureCode Python for more advanced text-based coding development, if needed, using the popular Python language.

Thanks to all our fabulous school users for your ongoing feedback, support and interest in Blippit IO – we really do appreciate it!
