Why does Teaching Web Design with Open Ended Lesson Plans make sense?

April 27, 2017

Over the last 6-7 yrs of working with schools to deliver an effective code curriculum, we’ve found that open ended lessons plans is the way to go.

The following is from StudioWeb’s outline on why we choose flexible open ended lessons, over fixed lesson plans:

Code Course Lesson Plans

Our experience has taught us that fixed lesson plans often get in the way of teaching – it makes no sense to try and impose a rigid structure on teachers. Because of this, we’ve designed lessons plans that are open ended … and the results have been great!

With StudioWeb’s open ended lesson plans, teachers can easily manage students of different abilities, while easily adapting the curriculum to a wide range of school schedules.

That said, our lesson plans still provide a solid structure that makes running a StudioWeb class easy.

… We have seen so much variation in terms of how quickly students learn, and how teachers integrate StudioWeb, it only made sense to keep the software and course content flexible.

To learn more: check out the StudioWeb Quick Start guide, where classroom activities are suggested and course projects are detailed. 


We continue to refine the StudioWeb app and courses:

  • HTML
  • CSS
  • JavaScript
  • Python
  • SQL
  • PHP

… based on feedback from teachers and students. After nearly 7 years of development, StudioWeb has come to be an invaluable tool for educators. In fact, we have a 100% renewal with schools.
