Testing Construct 2's efficiency in education

For educators around the world who use Construct 2 in classrooms

So you don't recommend teaching C2 in high schools (speaking in general and not looking at the curriculum)?

I've looked into the tasks you gave me a few posts earlier:

philscomputerlab wrote:- Create a C2 project that demonstrates a nested selection (nested if statement) and do the same in Scratch.
- Use C2 to teach the concept of a procedures with passing a parameter
- Use C2 to teach the difference between FOR, Repeat until and While loop


- Nested selection: Isn't that what sub-events do?
- You can create procedures with the function object easily and add parameters and a return value too.
- I guess it shouldn't be hard to create tasks to demonstrate the difference between the 3 loop types you mentioned (although the FOR vs Repeat can be interesting for students).

In general, if I'd teach programming fundamentals, I would not use C2.

Have a go at creating the tasks in C2 vs. Scratch and tell me which one you find more suitable for teaching.
