In order to provide students with challenges and assistance both within, and beyond the school gates, I have created myCodeChallenge.uk.

It is currently in Beta release and if you are a teacher and want to help with the development of this environment then please contact me.

myCodeChallenge from a teachers point of view:

  • A place to upload tasks, challenges and research questions for students to use, reducing printing costs and enabling homework to set easily
  • A place to upload help sheets and links to appropriate sites to provide assistance to those that need it
  • See class sets of student answers all in one place, easily and simply from a list
  • Provide feedback to student answers easily and simply
  • See how students feel about the challenges as they can assign a confidence ratings to their answers: happy, meh, un-happy
  • Provide appropriate levels of assistance based on student ability through the use of ‘Hokens’ – help tokens
  • Easily assess tasks based the level of challenge and the amount of help required by the student (they spend their ‘Hokens’ for help)
