In this 2-hour hands-on workshop, teachers with no prior coding experience will learn the basics web development with HTML and CSS, and how these technologies can be used to cover topics from the Digital Technologies curriculum for years 7 to 10.
The workshop will consist on lectures, Q&A, exercises and coding challenges. By the end of the workshop, all participants will have created their very first web page with HTML and CSS.
All participants need to bring a laptop with Google Chrome and the free program Adobe Brackets (or any other code editor) installed, so that they can complete the different exercises and coding challenges.
Some of the topics to be covered include:
- HTML tags
- How the Internet works
- HTML forms to capture qualitative and quantitative data
- Representing data in HTML lists and tables
- Separation of content and presentation
- CSS selection and styling
- Font decorations
- Principles of responsive web design
