Another interesting aspect of technology taught during our yearly holiday tech camp is Web Design.
What exactly is Web Design?
Web design refers to the design of websites that are displayed on the internet. It usually refers to the user experience aspects of website development rather than software development. Web design used to be focused on designing websites for desktop browsers; however, since the mid-2010s, design for mobile and tablet browsers has become ever-increasingly important.
The Benefits of Teaching Web Design to Kids
Some of us really don’t know what we gain from involving ourselves in these things. Below, I have listed a series of benefits we can gain from learning web design:
- Technical Skills Improvement: More than one technical skill is very important. Each technical skill has its own uses and benefits. Similarly, when a student learns to think about websites then they will build, design and use it for their personal and for national advantages various times in the career. Specifically, in the IT field, things change very dramatically and it’s important that you have multiple computer/internet skills or technical skills, so that you can use it whenever you will need in the future.
- Internet as a platform and also as a tool: When students start learning, building, designing, running websites and apps, they will get knowledge about various internet platforms, their uses, and benefits such as social media platform, students websites, learning and teaching platforms, online income platforms, etc. and these are very effective to survive and grow in career for students.
- Creativity: When these kids are introduced to the coding aspect and designing of their websites, they are forced to think. Thereby making them widen their creative span and also allowing them to think of possible ways their websites may look. Their thinking abilities are therefore sharpened making them quicker in other areas of their life, not just web design.
- Income source: No one knows the value of money in college and school time more than students. Small dreams, little attractions, desires, and interests motivate students to get the money. And if students are successful to run the website, successful to sell online, successful to earn part-time income and the income from their hard work will make them happy. And the achievement, success, appreciation helps to create and build a strong foundation for the career of students. And when it became a regular income source, when learning becomes habits, the problem of unemployment and the unemployment rate will decrease extraordinary in any country. That’s it, what we need to think and act as a society, leaders, teachers, and students.
Web Design in KodeHauz
Two of the most common methods for designing websites that work well both on desktop and mobile are responsive and adaptive design. In responsive design, content moves dynamically depending on screen size while in adaptive design, the website content is fixed in layout sizes that match common screen sizes.
In KodeHauz, we follow industry standards and trends to prepare our trainees for the tech ecosystem. We make use of Visual Studio Code which helps them write codes for implementation on whichever type of website they wish to create.
