Recently, we were approached by Squirrels Heath Junior School, Romford, Essex to give a presentation to their Year 6 children. We were happy to oblige and be the introductory element to a topic they were about to start called, ‘Tomorrow’s World’.
The children’s project will culminate in them creating their own website, so our talk was to help them understand better the role of a website designer and digital marketer. We explained the components that make up a good website. This encompassed, not only the visual aspects, but also the work that needs to be undertaken to make a website perform well in search engine results.
The children were engaged and participative and they asked great questions. We gave them some tips about what to think about when designing their sites in a few weeks’ time.
The teachers of Year 6 will create a shortlist of the best websites and we have been asked to judge the overall winner from each class. We look forward to seeing what they come up with!
If you would like us to come and give a talk to your group, school, or work place about web design and digital marketing get in touch by calling 01708 578 015 or emailing firstname.lastname@example.org.
