Website Building Class: 6th and up
Course description: As technology continues to advance, it is becoming more and more important for students to have an online presence, aka your personal brand, from running for leadership positions at your school or local community, to marketing your club or newly formed non-profit, to showcasing your art works. And when it comes to college applications, it is becoming common for students to be asked to share their online presence with schools and employers. With the availability of no-code website creation platforms that do not require users to have web development knowledge, expectations are high. It can be difficult to know what should be on your site, how to convey your ideas, and how to present yourself. In our website design class, you will learn how to create an online presence that shows you in the best possible light. We will cover the structure of your page, content writing skills and techniques to convey your ideas clearly and confidently, and ways to appeal to your specific target audience. Through this class, you will master platforms like Wix and Squarespace, leaving with a website that you can proudly put on your leadership campaigns, portfolio, college applications and use to market yourself as you progress through your education and career.
