Week 11: Wiki, Don't Lose That Number!
What we have left: wiki assignment, iMovie Software/PSA, Google Earth, Emerging Technology (already in progress), and your TaskStream Narratives. . .
Tonight: I will introduce you to the wiki assignment, which I hope will be a fun assignment for you. Most of you will be publishing your first wiki page ~ which we will host on your blogs using Embedit.in. I also want everyone to use their Inspiration graphic organizer to begin writing a second TaskStream Narrative. . .you can begin a new GoogleDoc and share it with me, email@example.com, and Mark, firstname.lastname@example.org
Next week: we will do the iMovie Software Proficiency assignment. I usually give you footage of the campus and have you create a PSA (Public Service Announcement) promoting CSUSM. . .Well, with the recent racially-charged events happening @ UCSD & CSUSM, I would like to create a PSA against hate speech or hate crimes. . .This might entail shooting some of your own video to go along with the video I have. . .I will talk about this in class tonight (remind me if I don't, please). . .and if you have any type of computer/mp3 player headphone, it will be useful when we are editing.
This Week's Question: How do you feel about single-gender schools (all-boy or all-girl)? Experience or thoughts?
