Proposal summary

Purpose & objective

At the end of this session, participants will leave with actionable ideas for implementing Wix Education's free Web Creation, Web Design, and Web Development curricula in their classrooms. They'll also leave with ideas for advocating for creative web-making in their schools and classrooms. We will also examine how we think about web creation — as a tool for self-expression, to nurture creativity, and to foster 21st century skills — and hope learners will leave with a refreshed perspective of what creating with the web can look like. Practically, learners will leave with knowledge for how to set up their students with our free materials, how to navigate our online activities, and how to adapt our curricula for their settings.
