So here is your first assignment for Quarter 1. It is going to be an ongoing project and will contain many marks. The weekly blog checks and assignment posting should be located within this assignment. The first project is to create and manage your own website. The format you will be using will be through Weebly. If you already have a weebly website, excellent. If you don't then you will have to make one.
Your first mark will be to create your site and email me the link to our site. There are guidelines you need to follow in order to receive full marks. These will be posted very soon. For now, create the site, work on the design and email me the link.
Sections on the Website
Each section of your website needs to have a unique header image or an image at the top of the page. This image or image needs to reflect the section that you are showing (Videos has something to do with videos).
Today's class will be to set up a new gmail account. This account will be linked with my G+ account so we can share information. We will be using this account for a great deal of work, so choose you user name appropriately.
We will now be looking at features of Google. Today we will be discussing Google reader, how it works, what is it useful for, how to set it up and how to use it on your website. This will not be part of the weekly assignment but will be included in next weeks assignments.
For our Thursday Class, you should be finishing your site, making sure you have a Gmail account, looking into Google Reader and playing the following game. It is on Falcon (so it doesn't need internet and can go full screen). If you want it, for home you can copy it next week (we will do something for files next week).
To play this on campus...open my computer and change the address to the following:
