Teacher Review for Codecademy

Excellent Independent learning tool that with recent changes now allows teachers to set up and monitor the progress of students through the pathway set up by the teacher.

How I Use It
I use it to ensure that students develop skills in programming that can then be built on in class.
My Take
As a teaching tool it allows students to move through at their own pace; it extends class learning and the badge system allows students to target a class league table. There are also opportunities for students to take on other programming languages or website scripting languages to stretch themselves.
