The purpose of this outline is to guide teachers and their learners who are working together under the ICT clubs in their preparation for the upcoming website competition. This will also strengthen their understanding of managing activities of Integration and the Project-Based Learning following the New Secondary curriculum.
This course will provide the foundations of software development focusing on the commonly used online Applications which can intentionally be manipulated to create a platform that will contribute solutions to the 17 Sustainable Development Goals.
The syllabus starts with the introduction to web coding using HTML and CSS. The learners will cover more different editors and browsers for perfecting their projects. While training will be taking place over the weekends, there is a dedicated KAWA youtube channel with all the required videos to support learning and engagement even without a teacher.
Our aim here is to show you that these technologies are not as hard and that any teacher can give support to the learners. The students themselves even without teachers present can use the videos and learn a lot more.
The trainers are going to make the code easy, explaining everything in a simple way. We expect that every course participant at least knows how to operate the basic text editor and how to get around the operating system and the file system on any computer. We hope that you have some Internet connection and you can be able to watch some videos whether online or offline we also hope that you are capable of using any browser so that you can test out whatever you’re able to create.
