The journey into and through piloting teaching coding at various levels in a district is a challenge to say the least. Middle School provides that awkward and unique opportunity to make the transitions from early childhood to adolescence. Stephan Mischook the pioneer at Studio Web makes a case for teaching code to kids and we agree.
To get the best outcomes with students, here are my top 3 code teaching tips:
- Write real code, not ‘lego’ code.
- Use real coding tools, not code simulators.
- Build real projects from start to finish.
