For the first time, WordCamp Miami is holding a WordPress beginner’s workshop for kids. It will be held on Sunday, May 11 from 10 a.m. until 12 p.m. at the University of Miami,

Because it’s Mother’s Day, the first post the kid’s write on their blog will be dedicated to their moms or significant others. “We can’t think of a better geeky way to celebrate Mother’s Day,” said David Bisset, WordCamp Miami organizer.

The class will be led by Tammie Lister and Sarah Gooding. They will walk kids and their parents through the process of setting up a new WordPress.com account and how to get started blogging and publishing content to the Internet.

While the class is geared towards 8-12 year olds, any age is welcome to attend (space permitting). Parents must be present for children under 13 and all attendees must bring a laptop. Children under the age of 18 can attend without charge with a paid adult (parent) ticket.

This is designed to be an interactive class, so participation and questions are welcomed and required. The Kids WorkShop is sponsored by Dreamhost.
