So, 2 weeks down and I have no idea how many more to go. I have to say, when I figured I would be missing the first 3 weeks of school it was really hard for me as a teacher. I love teaching and not being there with you is very, very difficult. That being said, with the help of returning IT students and just having an incredible class list I feel like you are all just nailing the work.
Those blogs...I mean right off the start, AMAZING! You write with personal insight and distinct voices. It is a harder thing to o than you can imagine. When I get back I am going to have to post the top 3 blogs of the week because some of them are shockingly good. Just simply writing will help you deal with issues, voice opinion and gain comfort in language. Write more than you think you need to, make mistakes and enjoy it. I don't mark you on grammar so let your words flow!
NOTE When you finish writing a blog click out of the text box. If you don't do this Weebly cuts off your blogs. You can check by actually going to your own site ad looking what was cut off. Once you click off the text box, only then hit Publish Changes.
Now, for this week.
Your assignment is going to impact the school. You are going to help me make the lab even better. What I need you to do is to practice a little shopping. Yes I said shopping. You will need to use your Snipping tool skills (or print screen if you wish) to take snapshots of online products and justify choices. What we want to buy are web cams and mic headsets. Below is the assignment with everything you need to know.
Due Date: When I get back.
You also have blogs for the week. I will give you 3 blogs again this week. 2 guided blogs and one commentary on a video.
Did you want to know why I posted the dinosaur video? Did it confuse you? Karim Fahmy didn't like it much...boooo. I posted it because I could. You live in a world where videos, for better or worse, are an integral part of your day. You need to remember that sometimes you need to enjoy silliness, smile and believe that no matter what happens around us there is still joy and humor.
