How I Use It
I used this tool as a self-guide tutorial of how to create a website before launching into code and design lessons. I wanted students to get a hands-on feel for how the internet works, and to learn that they will be part of it - not just users! They really enjoyed this, and several have told me that they continue to use it for help creating new things when they're unsure of how to proceed. Awesome tool!
My Take
My students wanted to learn how to create a website, but needed more than just a "book of code." This tool allows students to create their own site, learn how to code some pretty cool features, and have a ton of fun doing it!
