Many providers use a Flipped Classroom approach, where kids work through the S2JS tutorials, and the teacher roams the room providing custom one-on-one assistance as required.
Many teachers will also periodically set a group goal or challenge, to establish a checkpoint and ensure everyone is achieving proper comprehension and not just click click clicking ahead. You decide what you want the kids to achieve, and they do their work in their private S2JS project area.
As a teacher, you can also use our Teacher Console to monitor students progress and work.
You create a teacher group, and are then provided with a special S2JS url. Any student accessing S2JS via that url becomes a permanent member of your group.
Kids can be members of more than one group, groups can have more than one owner, and owners can have more than one group.
The Teacher Console is a great place to keep an eye on your kids progress.
You can always store your larger images on a separate image-sharing website (whatever your firewall allows), and just reference those urls in the programs you store on S2JS.
The goal is for users to see how to build up complex things from simple things, rather than present them with a lengthy nested expression and have their mind boggle. Far better to do it over three lines, and have them follow every step.
But if you see something where you think we've missed a simpler path, notwithstanding the preceding comments, then please do let us know.
From there I got a degree in Computer Science and started my career at a medium-sized company. Six years later I quit my job and freelanced while looking around for ideas. I ended up writing some software and starting a company, which I ran for 20 years before selling it to a large multinational.
It made me realise something needed to bridge the gap between Scratch and "lines of code" languages, so I used my experiences at the primary and high school to create S2JS.
Computing has been good to me, so I'm happy to self-fund S2JS.
If you're interested in how teenagers explored computing at the dawn of the modern industry, click here for a MITS Altair Simulator that provides a true-life simulation of the type of computers we used. The "good old days" are now.

AboutS2JS is a constant work-in-progress so your feedback is welcome.
Its goal is to provide a FREE path for kids who are skilled in Scratch and would like to progress their coding skills in a more powerful direction.
First, let's all agree that Scratch is awesome. Without doubt the best training language for kids (or adults) by a country mile.
Python is also a popular training language and a frequent next step for Scratch graduates. Python is a fine language with many nice features as well as one or two horrific ones, but it presents a couple of pitfalls:

Either install a more recent version of this browser, or try using a different browser.
You'll be able to write Scratch-like games that run anywhere, including on your friends smartphones.
