Just wishing everyone a Happy New Year!

Much more to come with the soon to be released StudioWeb 3.1, and a new Python course!

Thanks!

Talking about Teaching Kids Code on local Tv

September 6, 2016

studioweb on tv

I was invited by a local morning Tv show to talk about teaching code to kids in the classroom. In a nutshell, people are quickly realizing that coding should be considered one of the main skills anyone should have:

  • Reading and writing
  • Math
  • Code

Efforts all over the world are being made to teach code in the schools. This is what I’ve have working for going on 6 years now.

Check it out!

StudioWeb certification guarantees code competent students

August 2, 2016

030

StudioWeb can now certify students in HTML5, CSS3, JavaScript and our comprehensive Web Foundations.

Certification is a 3 stage process

For students to pass StudioWeb certification, they must:

  1. Successfully complete the course with a 60% + grade.
  2. Successfully complete the assignments.
  3. Finally, successfully complete the certification exam.

The process of certification is overseen by a teacher who verifies the integrity of the process. Our grading rubric is robust and accurately reflects the skill level of students. If a student is StudioWeb certified, they know how to code!

Certification developed by a 22 year veteran in web development

Stefan Mischook started coding in 1994, and developed his first educational app in 2000 for a publicly traded company.

In 2003 Stefan released his first course on coding: ‘Web Design 1’. Since that time, Stefan has been published several times in print publications, and recently his book ‘Web Design Start Here,’ was published in July 2015. You can find the book in stores across North America, Europe and on Amazon.

StudioWeb now enters its’ 5th successful year in CTE programs!

August 1, 2016

StudioWeb has been used in successful CTE programs for 5 years! Here is a recent quote from Jason in Ohio:

I am a champion for StudioWeb, having used it with my CTE students and watching its development over the past 5 years.

I write code myself, but found this program is so well-organized and so engaging for my students, it has been an excellent resource.  In fact 95% of my students complete the courses and learn skills that are in great demand, whether or not they go to college.

Best,

Jason Gardner
Director CTE

StudioWeb Makes Teaching Code without Knowing Code Easy!

June 28, 2016

learning-languages

Hi!

One of the main goals with StudioWeb, was to create a platform that allowed teachers who don’t know how to code, to easily be able to teach code without much prep, and without much (if any) PD.

… We succeeded!

It only took us 5 years, 🙂 with feedback from students and their teachers! On top of that, data from hundreds of thousands of questions answered, allowed us to fine-tune the courses and quiz questions. Everything on StudioWeb is private and confidential, but we are able annalyse student data while keeping everything anonymous.

With StudioWeb, you have an engaging set of courses that teaches real-world coding, through video quizzing and code challenges. Our auto grading saves teachers time, and our provided projects allows students to exercise their coding skills with coding projects that you see in the workplace.

… Moving a robot is fun, but why not build the screens (user interface) for a mobile app?

If you would like to try a classroom demo, or to learn about the teacher’s tools we provide, feel free to contact us.
