By encouraging students to feel pride in what they’ve learned, what they’ve made, and what skills they’ve acquired, Share Week reinforces the essential lesson that learning is its own reward. Building grit is a key part of our pedagogy at The Coding Space, and nothing reinforces grit more than learning to take authentic pride in your efforts—regardless of external accolades. While awards, certificates, and praise can be great ways to encourage students, it’s even better to teach students to celebrate the internal reward of hard work itself.
No matter the platform or skill level, each project is as unique as the student who created it. See below for a few of the many examples of creativity and passion.
