How I Use It
I have used Code Avengers to teach HTML coding to my Computer Science classes. I have a teacher account and my students are linked to that account so I can make assignments and see their progress. I have only used the free components of this website and it has been more than enough to bring exposure to HTML to my students. I have never had any glitches or problems with implementing Code Avengers in my classes.
My Take
I think Code Avengers as a teaching tool is excellent. It walks students step-by-step through the elements of coding and provides real-time feedback as they see their webpage developing. It is not easy...it is best for high school students. HTML is very dry to teach, and challenging. This format of interactive lessons makes it more appealing to students while still really teaching them HTML. It also has resources and supports for students who are struggling. The only element I am missing as a teacher is possibly some kind of answer key or more supports for teachers. For now, my answer key is my own completed lessons.
