Just like building blocks, paint or clay, the web offers an opportunity to spark creativity, expression and innovation for children and young adults. Just check out this “Site of Pure Awesomeness!!!” created by Oliver, a 9 year old with WordPress and iThemes Builder. (We were impressed!)
There’s no doubt that web proficiency will be a vital part of the next generation’s skill set, but where do you start?
Web technology education means a lot to us at WebDesign.com. We’re passionate about the next generation of web developers having the foundations and competencies that they need to excel in an rapidly progressing field.
We’ll be hosting a free informational webinar this week to train attendees on how to safely encourage the technilogical creativity in children today:
How to Start Your Child in Web Design
Wednesday, July 11, 2012 11:00 AM – 12:00 PM CDT
Here are a few of the topics we’ll be covering:
- Boundaries and safety – create safeguards for privacy and controls
- Skill levels - tips and resources to help tailor to individual needs and familiarity
- Creative real-world examples of successful sites managed by kids – show kids what’s possible (and be inspired, too)!
We’re proud to be partnering with the iThemes Education Program to provide special resources and training. If you’re an educator, homeschooler or parent interested in web design education for your students or children, we hope you’ll join us this Wednesday and be sure to check out the iThemes Education Program for free resources and more information about special educational discounts.
