Course proposal for high school students in a two-week mini-course



High-Value Web Communications with Concept Maps & WordPress

Learn about open-source, high-tech software for making concept maps. This fun communication tool aids one's thought process in deeper, complex topics. Build skills that can greatly assist you in the future when approaching problems or studying at college. Next, we'll publish our creative designs to the web and learn basic WordPress and collaboration capabilities. Students determine and write upon their own major topic areas such as music, things for teens to do in Pittsburgh, and other fun stuff.
