Lessons are a feature that will help teachers more easily conduct their coding classes. It is easily accessed from each classroom’s dashboard and is currently only available for Coding Adventure courses.
Advantages of using Lessons:
- Access individual lesson plans from the classroom dashboard. This can help you easily manage your lessons based on where you are in the course.
- A distinct mode for when you are teaching and when students play. When you begin a lesson, student accounts go into Lesson Mode, which means they cannot access any content. When you assign challenges, student accounts go into Playtime, which means they can only play the challenges relevant to the lesson you are on. This can help improve students’ focus and attention during class time since they will not be distracted by other challenges or activities.
- Keeps track of your progress in each class since it saves which lesson plans you already taught. Once you end a lesson, it will automatically be marked as complete and will take you straight to the next lesson so you never forget where you left off.
