Today’s school students are facing a ‘global achievement gap’ – the gap between what the schools are teaching and the skills young learners need to learn.
Some of the essential skills every student needs to succeed in their personal and future professional life are problem-solving, creativity, collaboration, adaptability, logical thinking, and critical thinking.
HTML and Skill Development
A computer language, Hypertext Markup Language (HTML) is used to create websites and web pages. HTML is the foundation of webpages, and it is the building block of the internet.
By learning HTML, students gain the ability and confidence to create functional and visually appealing websites. It develops life skills in students which include creativity, problem-solving, critical thinking, and logical thinking while preparing them for future career opportunities.
Web Designing with HTML
While learning web design & development, students explore and learn how to create an aesthetically pleasing page. By tapping into their creative side, they use HTML to make a webpage look organized and attractive. HTML strengthens the foundation and encourages students to learn new coding languages and build upon their digital skills.
Tags in HTML
Having a basic understanding of tags that are used in HTML helps students learn how to construct and operate websites.
Below are some of the tags used in HTML
The first element of an HTML document is the head tag. It stores meta-data, scripts, and title of a webpage.
The main section of an HTML document is the body tag. It contains all the webpage content – the text, images, videos, and other information that a viewer sees when visiting a website.
Placed in the head tag of an HTML document, the title tag contains the title of a webpage. The title is displayed in the browser’s title bar, search engine results and bookmarks.
Used to create headings on a webpage, the heading tags are used to structure content into sections; they range from h1 (the most important heading) to h6 (the least important heading).
The paragraph tag is used to create paragraphs on a webpage; it adds blank lines/space between blocks of text.
Knowledge of HTML helps students grow in careers which include:
