New tools in makecode tutorial

Hello, I have idea that could be useful.
Makecode - When creating a tutorial, adding a new special block that would make the program require the use of given blocks a certain number of times.

’ ’ 'required
agent.move(BACK,1) - 2
’ ’ ’

This would mean that you have to use this block 2 times in your program.
Often when I create tutorials for children, e.g. learning loops, children do my task without using them, it would be nice to be able to force them to a specific solution


I agree. This would be super useful when trying to shoehorn students into using specific skills.

We do have the ability to check to see if they’ve used a block (tutorial validation) but it will still let them move on without it.
