Technology 14-15

  • Third Quarter Tech Grades
    Due to the snow days, Turquoise students have until Wednesday, April 8 to complete the Hour of Code.    So far over 12 students have completed the course with a perfect score.   Many others are in the A range.   If students get stuck, they should try to listen to the video and look at the hints.  They can also ask for help during advisory or lunch.
    The website logins can be found in the last posting.   I will update the grades on April 6, and again on April 10.

  • Technology 3rd Q
    Students have just returned to technology.   This quarter we are working on computer coding skills.  Students are to try to complete Hour of Code.  They know how to access their account from the sites listed below.  One tech grade will be based on their progress on this course.   They will also be programming two projects using Scratch.  If they want to work on their Scratch project at home they need to bring in a flash drive to save their work.
     
    Hour of Code:
       Students will be learning basic block coding through the website learn.code.org.   They will be given personal passwords in class.  They should also work on the tutorial at home.   It is anticipated that over 73 million students in the country will be learning code during Computer Science week.

  • Digital Citizenship
    We have been discussing proper digital citizenship in class.     A good website for parents and students is commonsensemedia.org.
    The students asked me to post this video that lists the Top 10 Things to Think About Before You Post.   https://www.commonsensemedia.org/videos/oversharing-think-before-you-post        I would love them to make up some posters relating to these ideas, which I will place in my hallway.
     
    We discussed the fact that they are still too young to access many of the social media sites, but that these rules also apply to texting and other forms of communication, including writing.
