Are you interested in learning about HTML and writing for the open web? Or, are you already comfortable with HTML and eager to share your skills with friends and colleagues?
EduCon is happening the last weekend of January and will bring tons of folks interested in education, technology, and entrepreneurship to Philadelphia. With all that energy descending on Philly, we wanted to take some time to share resources and tactics for teaching and learning introductory HTML with journalists, people who lead workshops, coders, and anyone interested in sharing the wonder of the open web!
During the workshop, we'll use and explain "hacktivity kits," a kit for running learning events. We'll use a kit designed especially for journalists and talk about hacking the kits to fit other learning objectives. We'll go through some exercises and discuss tips and tactics for leading informal learning sessions as we conduct the workshop. Participants will leave with more familiarity with HTML and additional resources (and excitement!) for leading learning sessions.
This event is BYOL - Bring Your Own Laptop!
(Really, an actual laptop. If you don't have one, folks can partner up, but tablets/mobile devices won't work.)
