eSchoolView's dedication to educating students about technology
Members of the eSchoolView Team are now teaching coding classes to 8th grade students at Reynoldsburg City Schools in Columbus, Ohio.
Students are taught HTML (a language from which websites are built) and CSS (a style guide for its interpretation)
The goal is to reach students early and help them discover a direction in a technology-rich world with endless possibilities.
“This class is an excellent opportunity for the students to connect what they learn in the classroom with a real-life application,”
Expectations are steep. Students are expected to learn the code, write original content, create a logical flow for navigation on a mock-up site and use original digital pictures to enhance the site’s design and effectiveness.
eSchoolView staff teaches the class every day through its Investing in Our Future program. The company is dedicated to helping students develop 21st century skills. In fact, eSchoolView has offered more time and money in each of the program’s three years — which also offers substantial scholarships to high school seniors across the country — for the development of future leaders.
More than 50% of the students in the class said they would be interested in pursuing programming or website development as a career path.
