Over the past few weeks, we have been creating our own websites using only a scripting language called HTML (HyperText Markup Language). Great resilience, patience and attention to detail was required as the slightest error in our code would create a bug and our webpages wouldn’t display. Where we were stuck, we could go online to find a line of code to fix the problem or ask one of the experts in our midst – just what professional programmers do!
We applied our design, maths and English skills to this project. Importantly, we developed our digital citizenship skills by learning about copyright law when using images and text, and how the content we create can affect others. Creative Commons has many copyright-free images that you can use.
Can you spot the webpage with a bug? How would you fix the problem?
