The plans for this week are slowly taking form. They are not 100% because I am hoping certain items show up during the week.
For your assignments this week we are going to be working with 1 or two aspects of Google Reader, as well as continuing our blogging. This week you will need to step up the blogging to 3 before class on Thursday. It would be a good idea to get into a rhythm and start blogging once a class. This week I ask that at least 1 of your blog entries deal directly with the IT class.
The beginning of the week I will want everyone to have established their Google account and set up a Google Reader with the minimum of 5 different News Feeds going into the Reader. I will be teaching you how to embed the code for your reader into your website. The assignment for this week will be to share 3 stories (from three different feeds, one being a technology story) and summarize them on your website. The exact method of doing this will be talked about in class this week.
Lastly, we will be working with either Google Groups or Google Calendar. I have yet to decide which one we will be looking at, but I will change up this weeks summary once it all works out.
For Wednesday and Thursday we are going to be working on embedding Google Calendar into a website. You will need to make sure you pay attention in class Wednesday to see how to make a proper Google Calendar. Also, you will need to make a new menu tab called Calendar. You will be keeping up with all your classes onto your website, so organization is key to having it set up right. This is not due this week but will be due as a minor assignment sometime next week.
Don't forget to complete the above work on Google Reader as well.
Today (Thursday) play with Google Calendar and maybe some more zombies. Grades will be posted by the end of the day (or tomorrow, who knows)
