...In a word: students like the Blackbird platform. I've taught coding with other popular resources, but Blackbird is more pedagogically effective...

Hybrid & distance learning ready

Blackbird is browser-based so students can use it with any computer, at school or at home.

The most beginner-friendly text-based coding platform available

Three critical problems Blackbird solves

 

1. When you make mistakes

Traditional platforms give confusing error messages.

 

Blackbird has hundreds of unique, easy-to-understand error messages designed for beginners.

2. When you get stuck

When traditional platforms don't accept your code, there can be no way forward.

Blackbird's Show me feature gives you a correct line of code where you need it, allowing you to continue at crucial moments in the learning process.

3. When things get complicated

Debugging is a critical skill in coding, but traditional platforms don't have debuggers.

Blackbird has a beginner-friendly debugger integrated with the lessons.
