How I Use It
Some recommend this for older grades, but I have used it with 3rd graders and it inspires them to love programming and be fearless in trying to learn HTML/CSS. The formatting language of the web can seem like a dull subject, but with X-Ray goggles students can "hack the news" (in an ethical and safe way) and learn HTML tags while they are at it. It
My Take
What if our youth didn't just use the web, but could author web content, too? The first step to building something online is seeing how websites work. X-Ray Goggles give the teacher a peek behind the curtain, by making the browser's native developer tools kid-friendly. Students can see the code behind each element that makes up the web page simply by hovering over it. I think this is an essential tool for anyone teaching web-literacy or code.
