Years 9–10: Webpage design

This unit introduces students to key layers of webpage development that represent content, structure and presentation. Students develop simple webpages employing hypertext markup language (HTML) for the structure of webpage content, as well as Cascading Style Sheets (CSS) for styling. They explore aesthetics in modern webpage design, and accessibility for diverse audiences.

Optionally, students learn how to integrate JavaScript programming for more advanced webpage behaviour.
