Setting up a coding environment for the classroom.
April 2, 2018
One of the hardest aspects of getting a coding classroom up and running, is just getting the software installed on the workstation. After considering a many options, we decided to go with the web coding languages, since all computers already have the software you need.
… No need to install software!
Another advantage of teaching code with the web languages, is that they are the most important languages in coding today. With the web languages, you can teach students to all the major coding / programming concepts, as they learn the most popular languages used in industry today.
With HTML5 and CSS3, students learn what is called ‘client side’ coding. They will learn how the visual parts of programs are created. These concepts are universal; so once they learn user interface creation with HTML5 and CSS3, they will know how it is done in just about all programming languages.
StudioWeb’s Turn-key Code Curriculum
We’ve been working for schools for over 6 years now, and the StudioWeb program and curriculum has been refined based on what teachers and students have taught us. Our code curriculum makes it fun, and easy for both teachers and students:
- Over 300 short video lessons.
- Over 1400 engaging quiz questions and coding challenges.
- 57 assignments and grading rubrics.
- Auto grading by course, chapter and lesson – teachers don’t need to know code!
- Gamified engaging learning.
With as little as 20 minutes of prep, teachers with no experience with coding can have their classroom up and running!
