WordCamp is coming to Albuquerque and there will be a dedicated session just for kids to learn how to use WordPress to create a website.
WordCamp Albuquerque presents a session just for kids ages 6-17.
Kids are hungry to participate online and not just sit back, observe and wait their turn to be a blog-writing, site-building, individual with an online space to call their own. They’re aching to get their hands dirty and have their voices heard. With WordPress, the sky is the limit! Its streamlined and simplified user interface is so easy to learn, your child can set up a site and be blogging in no time.
Having this knowledge not only opens up an instant online home for them to enjoy right away, it sets them up for a lifetime of being ahead of the curve and could even result in a career in web design.
We’ll start the session by walking through setting up a basic WordPress.com site and then break into smaller groups. Have your child come in with a basic game plan in mind. If your child wants to blog but aren’t sure what they want to blog about, here are some ideas to get them started!
Photos of LEGO creations
Short stories or poems
Book reviews or a book club
Host a fundraiser or support a charity
And much more!
