John Partridge, at The Minster School, uses Codecademy with students for Computing. He explains why
I started using Codecademy right at the beginning after a recommendation from a friend working in web design. I had recently taken on the lead for Computing at The Minster School in Nottinghamshire and had been looking for ways of engaging students in coding.
In those early days I used it as an enrichment source for keen students. When students showed either an aptitude or an interest in programming we would recommend the site to them and encourage exploration of it as a way of developing their skills. It soon became clear that the site was providing a really accessible and supportive means of introducing some key principles and supporting student development.
