Our purpose is to help educators enter the world of coding. Many educators today are hesitant about coding. They are overworked and underpaid, and don't want to worry about learning a whole new subject. That's where Skill Struck comes in. One of Skill Struck's live instructors will introduce coding concepts in a simple and learner focused approach to help participants learn the basics. By the end of the session, participants will have their very own website to show off!
First 10 Minutes - Introduction to Skill Struck, the state of coding in education, and presentation of coding materials
40 minutes - Hands on keyboards, learning the basics of HTML and web design.
