At The Undead Institute we believe “getting braaains should be fun.” We’re trying to take stodgy and boring technical topics and inject them with life… errr… unlife(?)… very flustered You know what we mean.
Why Zombies? Not just a gimmick. We use apocalyptic analogies to make the concepts clearer and silly jokes to make learning fun. Plus research suggests laughing while learning helps you retain the information. For more info check out this Fast Company Article and this one from Edutopia.
- Zombie Web Development Reference – a zombie themed dictionary of HTML elements, attributes and common terms.
- Select-a-Zombie – teaches CSS selectors i.e. how CSS properties are applied to HTML elements.
- Zombie Specificity Wars – helps students learn the the rules of specificity which governs what happens when two CSS selectors conflict.
This curriculum is aimed at 8th and 9th graders, but the Chief Zombie Smacker, himself, John Rhea, has used it to great effect with his Community College students.
And that’s not all. See all our eBooks. We even have a student bundle.
