Middle School Web Design Courses that Teach Actual Code!

August 21, 2017

A teacher called yesterday looking for a web design course that teaches real web design coding skills. Like other teachers I’ve personally spoken to, she understood that dragging around blocks on screen, where the app writes the code for the student, is not nearly as effective as the student actually writing the code!

… Teachers quickly discover that students don’t learn much about coding with blocks.  🙁

So many code courses fallback on the misguided practice of using block-based teaching apps, thinking that this is helping students. As the teacher observed herself, with these systems, students quickly get bored and just follow the pattern.

Teaching code by having students write the code

Our experience has taught us that for students to actually learn to code, they have to write the code, make the mistakes, and get the feedback as they learn the languages of web design: HTML, CSS and JavaScript. The StudioWeb app provides instant feedback and hints, to help your students as they code.

Motivate your students!

Nothing motivates a student like seeing their code produce actual real-world results!

With the StudioWeb web design curriculum, your students interest levels will skyrocket, as they quickly see their code magically transform into websites that flex and flow on small smartphones, all the way up to giant 4k displays.

… Web developers call that ‘responsive’ design and your students will learn those marketable skills with StudioWeb.
