Codecademy – Painting

242068_sAs a 21st century learner we need to be able to read and write on the internet. Throughout the school year students will spend a portion of the design course learning code via codeacademy. Grading rubric is based on daily work/badges/time on task. Programs we will be learning include JavaScript HTML/CSSPHP PythonRuby, and APIs.

This is a beginners course. No previous knowledge required. Students may log into their course out side of class to work on projects. We are in this together! Internet permission slips must be turned in before beginning this assignment.

Begin by going to and create an account with your school email account.

Once done with these scroll up to Language Skills -complete “HTML & CSS”. Completion of these lessons should take about 7 hours.

You have until Dec 12th to complete. If you complete all of the above continue learning “JavaScript” and “jQuery” language skills.
