Lesson 2 - Words Are Not Enough

Rate this resource

It is said that a picture paints a thousand words. Web pages that only use text are not going to be read for long on a screen. The use of images on web pages is important as it can bring them to life and help improve the reader’s experience.

Learners will begin by recapping the important fundamentals of web page design, specifically the use of tags and their modification. They will explore the structure and operation of the img tag and understand how they can be used to ‘add’ images to web pages. To consolidate the learning of the first two lessons, they will also try to replicate a given web page design to see if they can use what they have learnt in the most effective way. 

This lesson is the second in a six session teaching unit provided by the National Centre for Computing Education.
