Global Web Designers

How to unite Web Design, Renewable Energy, Socratic Teaching and a Global Exchange in one class?

Guest post by Marianne Mann from EduMais in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil

In cooperation with Level Up Village, EduMais has introduced a new, exciting class: Global Web Designers. The class is an exchange program between EduMais and The Rumson Country Day School in New Jersey, United States. It gives eight children from EduMais and 13 children from our American partner school, aged between 10 and 12 years, the opportunity to exchange video letters and create a joint website about renewable energy.

In this post, I will delve more deeply into the specific web design skills they acquired (HTML, CSS and Javascript) and the outcome of their global collaboration.
