Unleashing Creativity Through Fun and Play – Website Design for Educators
In this workshop, educators will create websites, without any programming
skills required, using fun and engaging hands-on activities that are synonymous
with children playing in a Sandpit. At the end of this workshop, participants will
be able to do the following:
- Understand how to unleash creativity in learners/students using an authentic task
- Rapidly create a functional and usable website that is findable by search engines
- Master how to get your learners/students actively engaged in a learning activity
- Learn to play, have fun while building something as useful as a website.
