FREE: HTML 101 for Kids


25 May

Do your kids like the computer? The Internet? Do they want to be able to design their own web pages? Do you want to use your children’s love of computers to actually have them learn something rather than just mindlessly websurfing or playing games? This upcoming class may be your chance!

Offered by a fellow homeschooling parent, this free class in basic HTML will give your children the chance to learn the basic HTML tags and the fundamentals of Web Design.

I can’t tell you how the class actually is at this point in time, but I just signed up my son and we will see how it goes.

The upcoming class starts Monday, June 2, 2014, and another one starts on Tuesday, July 8, 2014. There’s also a link to learn more about future classes if now is just not the right time.

Here is also some basic info (basically taken from his site):

– It’s open to students 9-years-old and older

– Some familiarity with a keyboard is valuable

– It’s a FREE “Beta” class, and feedback on the class is desired.

 

There’s no “set time” when your child has to be on the computer to do this, so it’s just something for them to work on and do when they can over the time period given. Hey, it’s better than hearing the classic, “I’m booooooored” or “There’s nothing to dooooooooooo” and will keep their minds alert this summer.

Happy Coding!
