For the first time, WordCamp Miami is holding a WordPress beginner’s workshop for kids. It will be held 10:00am until 12:00pm on May 11th,2014 (Sunday). As far as location, it will be near the other WordCamp Miami sessions at the same venue. We’ll have signs and volunteers to point you in the right direction.
The class will be led by Tammie Lister and Sarah Gooding. They will walk kids and their parents through the process of setting up a new WordPress.com account and how to get started blogging and publishing content to the Internet.
This class is geared towards 8-12 year olds, however, any age is welcome to attend (space permitting). Parents must be present for children under 13 and all attendees must bring a laptop. Children under the age of 18 can attend without charge with a paid adult (parent) ticket.
This is designed to be an interactive class, so participation and questions are welcomed and required. After the workshop, they can stay for lunch, and if they are up for it they are welcomed to go to the other sessions in the afternoon if you are supervising them.
Note: Because it’s Mother’s Day, the first post the kid’s write on their blog will be dedicated to their moms or significant others. We can’t think of a better geeky way to celebrate Mother’s Day.
