Be an Internet CREATOR... not just a CONSUMER
...
Introduction

Ongoing Saturday afternoon workshops sessions.

Guided projects, and individual tutoring/mentorships.

Sessions can be scheduled at your convenience.

Join us on Saturday afternoons for a very hands on, very project oriented exploration of internet technologies. Sessions run every Saturday afternoon from 3-4:30pm (now ongoing). You can register for individual sessions ($20) or for a discounted six-week package ($100). Students can start anytime they want, sessions do not have to be consecutive. New students will be introduced to the current group class project and brought up to speed at their own pace. When they are ready and interested they will have the opportunity to do an individual or partner project at the same time. They will build real, interactive web pages from the ground up using current internet development techniques and interface design. On an ongoing basis we cover the basics of how the internet works, about cyber-safety and security, social networking best-practices, and how to search effectively and authenticate the results. Recent projects have included a Random Haiku Generator, a Music Transposer, a Kitten-Themed Matching Tile Game, and an interactive dungeon adventure game. Projects like these allow each student to be creative with the content, theme, and design, while having fun learning the core internet technologies of HTML, CSS, and JavaScript.

Workshop Details

More Logistics:

Our new space, graciously provided by School for Tomorrow, will accommodate a small to medium sized group with lots of room to stretch out. Class size will be kept to a maximum of ten students to permit highly individualized instruction. The pace of the class will be tailored to each student, so those who have no internet or programming experience are welcome, as are those who have already done some web development. The six week class is payable in advance for $100. Ongoing sessions thereafter will be available in prepaid 6-session blocks, or $20 drop in. In either case, reservations will be required so we can keep track of the numbers. Sessions beyond the initial 6-week intro project will give students the opportunity to explore the technology more deeply and work on more complex, original, and individualized projects. For ongoing sessions, current students will be given priority for a mentoring workshop experience to explore more advanced concepts, while new students will be welcome as space permits.
