Best Coding Tools for High School Students

Best Coding Tools for High School Students | Education and Tech Tools | Scoop.it
Coding is an invaluable literacy applicable to virtually any future career or field of study. These high school-level tools will help students build this essential 21st-century literacy by learning how code works and how to write code themselves. Once they're up to snuff, coding will give your students a new way to demonstrate knowledge and express themselves.

 

And teachers, take note: There are tools for those brand new to code as well as those looking for more of a challenge, so make sure to pick and choose to give every student a window into the world of programming. If you're looking to begin coding lessons in your classroom, check out our Teaching Strategies for how to Get Started With Coding in Your Classroom.
