Learning to Teach a Python Course
September 7, 2017
One of the first questions teachers ask us:
” … how long will the PD be, in terms of learning how to teach a code class?”
Teacher and Student Feedback
It has taken us 6-7 years to polish our app and curriculum, but StudioWeb has been refined to be amazingly easy to teach a code class with … so, there isn’t much prep required. Teachers are happy to discover how quickly they feel comfortable leading a code class with StudioWeb.
In a nutshell, the prep with StudioWeb is:
- Watch our PD videos on setting up a StudioWeb class. It’s really, really easy since you just have to give account ids to students.
- You can do the course(s) as a student does them … to get familiar. Since StudioWeb has a powerful hinting system … students can never get stuck, which means you never have to answer code questions. So even doing this is not really required.
- Since SW does all the grading automatically, you don’t even need to grade!
