Teaching students code with HTML5

August 14, 2016

I was recently emailed from a dad wanting to get his 10 and 13 year old kids interested in coding. There are so many choices out there in terms of languages and for a non-nerd, it is hard to choose.

Having been teaching code since 2003, I suggest strongly that the languages of web design are the best choices. Here is my response to the father:

I am a big advocate of HTML5 since it is visual, easy to learn and is the basis of all websites, web apps and is a popular choice for creating mobile apps for iOS and Android. Students get excited when they see they are building actual websites.

I think if your kids have done Scratch, then I would suggest you move them into real coding beginning with HTML5, followed by CSS3 and then add the code that allows for decision making capability with JavaScript.

At the risk of being a shameless self promoter, StudioWeb provides that pathway with fun interactive training. We have family licenses that gives you the full classroom experience, where you have your own classroom, complete with teacher’s monitoring, auto grading and projects that you can assign your kids. Very easy to use but a powerful training environment that will teach your kids real-world coding skills that they can use to express any ideas they may have.

Top 3 Code Teaching and Learning Tips

April 14, 2016

SQL code training badge

To get the best outcomes with students (and yourself!), here are my top 3 code teaching tips:

1- Write real code, not ‘lego’ code.
2- Use real coding tools, not code simulators.
3- Build real projects from start to finish.

1. Write real code, not ‘lego’ code

A funny thing happens when students write real code: they start to learn not only how to code, but they learn the concepts behind the code. What I’ve seen over the years is that trying to hide the code from students with block based code teaching tools slows the learning process.

You have to write code to learn to code.
