Instilling a knack for creative problem solving through play
Play-based learning ignites creativity and enthusiasm in ways pervasive contemporary methods cannot. That's where we begin.
After every exercise, group-size permitting, each learner tells a brief story of how they chose their particular solution.
Soon each student or group will have coded their own website, customized it, observed the visual result of every code change, and learned which pieces of code affect which parts of the page.
The goal of the workshop is to create an environment where all learners can use their own decisions, failures, and successes to build something useful. Which really means the goal is to buffer confidence working (playing!) outside comfort zones, develop independent creative problem solving skills, while learning to code.
We'll cover the foundations and, as a function of play's integral role in the program structure, quickly move into more advanced concepts.
In this workshop, you'll get
Introductory and intermediate HTML and CSS
Competency with Bootstrap, the most popular HTML, CSS, and JS framework for developing responsive projects on the web
Why-based explanations and visuals at every step
Ages, Requirements, Etc.
The program is designed for all ages. For learners under 10, it helps to have a helper present to keep our young minds focused.
It's best if there is at least one device (laptop, desktop, tablet) for every three learners. Alternate programming is available for events where participants far outnumber devices.
