Levels:

This course aims to be flexible to meet the varied needs of students. You can work at NCEA Level 1, 2 or 3 but you will need either design or coding experience to attempt anything more than Level 1.

This year I will be working closely Renea in UPT Digital. This class will run in the Incubator and aim to support students to do assessments following there passions and interests.

I am keen to offer small workshops on certain things based on student interest.

Options for workshops could be around:

  • Web Design HTML5 CSS3
  • Programming in various languages - Python, Javascript, C, C++, C sharp, Java, PHP and more
  • CMS systems - Drupal, Wordpress etc
  • more options on request

I would suggest focusing on web design using HTML5 and CSS3 to start with.

Useful Resources

Projects and assessments can be on set tasks or negotiated with me.
