I am new to coding and teaching Computer Science Discoveries this year. One of my middle school students asked the following question and I am not sure how to respond. Can you help? See their message below:
"I am trying to run my interactive greeting card OUTSIDE of code/org. It is very confusing for many reasons.
- When I try to run the code somewhere else, it has a series of errors, including: it doesn’t know what ‘World’ is… must be a package that code.org imports for you… how can I import it?
It also has the output draw screen package… how do I import that? So while this code/org project is very interesting and helpful, I think it’s kinda lame that code.org is telling you how to program Java… on code/org. If I become a computer scientist, I am probably not going to be programming on code/org. I’m wondering if you can help a bit, If you can’t, that’s okay. It’s just that I want to be able to use these skills somewhere else also."
