How I Use It
This allows students to work their way through Javascript. They can set up their own accounts and being learning right away. The site shows the code for a particular object and how it works. Students are able to practice coding concepts learned right away and earn badges as their work their way through the modules.
My Take
CodeAcademy Javascript is a great addition to any programming class, but can be used in any classroom to promote coding, reading, writing, and critical thinking skills. It is a great way to have students work on their own to learn or expand coding skills.
