The web is one of the most prevalent platforms for communication in this technological age--which means it is also one of the most prevalent means for scammers to use. As a result, students should become more than just familiar with the web. Web development is one way students can learn the ins and outs of this communications platform, and how to protect themselves. Computing and Society, Computing Systems, and Computational Thinking are three strands of the Massachusetts DLCS standards encompassing the technologies of the web.
With this 15 hour self-paced course, teachers will explore benefits and dangers of distributed networks (for deploying web technologies), the (mis)use and storage of personally identifiable information (PII), and the furthering societal impacts and stressors facing the web today. Development for the world wide web can be the lens teachers use to provide focus for their students.
