An article on BBC (http://m.bbc.com/news/education-31501917I'm) got me thinking about  teachers' experiences with students (from Years 1-13) developing digital literacy, especially learning coding and creating games and websites using html; CSS, and java script.  I've attached links to web-sites that may be used in the classroom, or by students independently.  Is this practice happening in your school?  How is it happening and what (in brief) are the results?

Teach yourself HTML code: http://www.w3schools.com/html/

Teach yourself CSS http://www.w3schools.com/css/

    Hi Tessa,

     Great ideas. Very interesting.

    I can't say I have ever used this with students nor that anyone in my schools has.  Currently we do not have  the capability.  But I have taken note of the sights and when I get some of that elusive down time will explore this.

    Thank you

    Thanks for these ideas Debra.  I will store them away for future reference ie teaching students older than Y1-2.

    Cheers Kaye
