In the WEB DEVELOPMENT section, teachers and students will go through a lot of fun and educative lessons, here are some examples:
“Basic concepts & a bit of HTML”
In this lesson, students will learn the basic concepts of web development. They will understand the difference between a website and a web page, and learn about web browsers and the Internet. The lesson will cover HTML and CSS programming languages, HTML tags, and how to use a code editor. Students will also learn about heading and paragraph tags, building links and images on a website, and how to design HTML code. By the end of the lesson, they will have the foundational knowledge to build a basic website.
In this lesson, students will learn how to create their own newspaper using code. They will learn about different HTML tags and how to apply them, as well as how to use inline CSS for styling. They will also learn how to add images and color to their newspaper, and how to adjust the width and text alignment. By the end of the lesson, they will have created their very own newspaper complete with multiple articles and images. This lesson encourages creativity and experimentation with code.
“Be an organised programmer”
In this lesson, students will learn about the importance of saving data on a website and how to use stored data. They will be introduced to variables, play in-class games to understand the concept and learn how to declare and use variables in functions. The prompt function will also be introduced and used to store user input in variables. By the end of the lesson, students will understand the basics of variable declaration, storage, and retrieval, and have the opportunity to practice with bonus exercises.
Web development will be one of the most in-demand skills in the next decade. With 50% of the global population using the internet on a daily basis, it makes sense that tech skills will keep growing in demand. The amount of people using the internet is only going to increase.
It is not GalactIQ’s goal to train primary school students to become programmers in the future but we know how important it is for them to start learning programming languages at an early age.
With web development for kids, you can turn their passion for their devices or computer games into a learning opportunity! Let’s look at some of the best reasons kids should learn to code.
1. It Gives Them Confidence
Starting something new can always be a challenge at any age. If we can overcome those challenges to succeed, it instills confidence and drive. Learning web development skills is like learning a new language. To succeed, you have to make mistakes. If you can learn from these mistakes, it makes you better at what you are doing.
2. They Learn Creativity
Being the master of your own project is always fun. You can create whatever you want to. Whether that’s an app or a game, or a website that provides something useful, there are endless chances to be creative when learning to code.
Website development for kids is a way for them to let their imagination run wild and come up with something new and exciting that benefits them and those around them.
3. They Learn Transferable Skills
The importance of web development skills for kids should not be underestimated when teaching them important life skills. The challenges they face when learning to code can help them learn resilience and the ability to think creatively. These are all skills that can be used for their other school work and help them to succeed.
4.Teaches Them Problem Solving
Many children learn by doing. There is a huge movement in education for project-based learning. This method of learning teaches children how to use the theory they listen to in class. If a child can actively use what they have learned for a project that excites them, they are much more likely to remember the skills.
5. Children Learn Communication Skills
Another of the important skills learning code teaches children is communication. They learn the art of communicating effectively. They have to instruct a computer very specifically in order for it to perform the required task. Coding teaches kids to be thorough and accurate.
