Has your child ever asked you to start a blog or a YouTube channel but you didn’t know where to start or if it was safe?
Blogging is an amazing way to learn simple coding, computer skills, improve their writing, and zero in on their interests. In this course, children of all ages (recommended for ages 9+) will learn how to set up a free blog, basic coding skills, graphic design, how to organize a blog post and write good articles (Hello Language Arts!), blogging safety (privacy and dealing with spam), copyright, and even how to start a YouTube channel!
Kids will learn how to make a private blog as well as a public one and can discuss with you whether or not you feel comfortable with it being live.
This 1-month mini-course is delivered online and has daily videos, emails, and online lessons that they can log in to and work at their own pace. They will need access to a computer for the course and ideally a phone to take pictures or videos and upload to their blog or channel. There are no other costs associated with the course and it will cover basic language arts such as using good vocabulary, how to make your writing more interesting, organizing paragraphs, coming up with a thesis statement (aka topic), as well as computer skills!
KID BONUS: There is a private Facebook group for kids (they can use your account if they do not have their own) to ask questions, get ideas and support from other kids in the course, and more!
PARENT BONUS: This course also features a private video for parents to discuss safety and risks associated with YouTube, Social media, and blogging for kids to help you decide whether you want it to be private or public and what rules you want to set in place.
