My first (half) hour of coding left me... shocked. You can read more here. It did not go as I had planned. At. All.
So yesterday was our second time to meet. I had higher hopes that this meeting would go better but I did not set my expectations as high as I did for the first meeting.
I should have though.
Oh my word! This meeting was awesome!!!
Code website. In the end we didn't need to log into email. I thought they were going to have to verify their accounts through their email. I must of mixed it up with another site though.
Then I let them loose. And they ran with it. Some students needed a little bit of guidance. So I helped those who needed it. It got to where the students who were able to jump right in and swim would help those who needed a bit of help. I loved seeing the students helping each other.
As the courses got harder I did have to step in and give some tips. But on the whole students were able to teach themselves.
I cannot tell you how pleased I am after this meeting. I was starting to question my sanity after the first meeting. Ha! But this meeting left me ready to take over the world! Or at least my little world.
