I didn't have the coding experience needed to teach Intro to Computer Science and AP Computer Science, but CodeHS fulfilled that need plus an abundance of additional support.

Product Use: I use the product everyday in my classroom. CodeHS provides me with lesson plans, vocabulary, discussion topics, slideshows, and online support to help me become the most effective teacher I can be. The site has also helped me learn new languages and it connected me with other educators who are in the same situation as I am.

What Worked and What Didn't: CodeHS is great for allowing students to progress at their own pace and for allowing students to explore other coding languages. That freedom of pacing, however, also creates a gap between the advanced learners and the struggling learners. CodeHS does offer quite a bit of supplemental material, but most of my advanced kids just want to keep moving forward through the main curriculum.

Age Group: High school students
