Should you have Detailed Lesson Plans for Coding Courses?
August 20, 2018
I’ve been helping schools teach code over the last 7 years, and that experience has allowed us to refine the StudioWeb platform.
The StudioWeb curriculum is ideal for middle school, high school and college level students. One important lessons we have learned, is that an open-ended lesson plan, is by far the best approach to teaching code in the classroom.
Open-Ended Lesson Plans are Flexible
Our video based curriculum engages students, as they answer concept reinforcing quiz questions, and code challenges. This interplay of video and hands-on interaction with the content, produces amazing learning outcomes. Your students will not only understand the core fundamentals concepts of coding and programming, they will be able to demonstrate actual real-world skills.
… Something we have not seen in any other coding platform.
Video based Learning Supported by Projects
In addition to the many video lessons + quizzing, we provide 57 projects and classroom activities, for groups and individuals. You will have a lot of material.
Our lesson plans are open ended, to give teachers flexibility, to easily manage a classroom with students of varying abilities.
Most teachers simply start students on StudioWeb, allowing them to work at their own pace – the videos make this natural. When they complete chapter 3 of the HTML, you have the first projects you can assign. With each chapter in each course, you have new more projects you can assign.
… Don’t worry, grading the quizzes is handle by StudioWeb. For the hands on projects, we provide a super easy to use grading rubric, that makes it easy to assess students assignments.
StudioWeb’s lesson structure keeps students busy, and your classroom running smoothly. Your better students will not get bored, and students who need a little more time, will not feel left behind.
