My Conversation

I was able to talk to a few of my colleges such as Max Kulhman, Hunter Walker, and Patrick Sims and after discussing with each of them they all suggested that we include a video on our presentation about what we did in the junior class. This to me is a great idea because it will give our audience the best perspective of our work!

Response to Post

1. Digital literacy is the ability to not only use but comprehend the tools that you are using. Understanding and connecting with them.
2) I would say I'm fairly digitally literate, but there are always aspects I can improve on throughout my life.
3) I believe that adults should trust us to create our own educational path. We are in that point of our lives where we should makes decisions on our own and do whatever we want to do as a career. Parents can help guide us to that path but should trust us to create our own.
A) Digital Literacy is the ability to understand and use information in multiple formats from a wide range of sources when it is presented via computers.
B) I would say that I am digitally literate because I am able to use computers to get my information and take the important parts from the huge variety we are presented on the internet. When in need of something specific, I am confident that I will be able to find my information on the computer.
C) Adults should trust us to create our own educational paths, because if we are able to that, we will create a path that is interesting for us. If there are some guidelines that students must follow, they will stay in those guidelines but do whatever they actually want to do. They will be motivated to actually want to learn and will be more likely to stay on top of their work. Times are different from when they were growing up and innovation is a key to what keeps our society moving on. This would be innovation by letting students use technology in a way too help themselves learn.
4) My vision of the digital future is that technology will take over the way students learn. I think that homework will be done online, then eventually classwork will be done online and technology will continue to take over the classroom. My place in this vision, is that I was apart of the first class that did a majority of their homework online. With the blogs, we have done something that no class has really done before and this should be revolutionary for classes to come. I'm glad that I could be apart of it.

Finish Product

My group and I plan to have our group project finished tomorrow. Tomorrow we plan to present all of our hard work to the junior class tomorrow. We will have a power point to present and we asked the documentary crew to film us tomorrow.

Teaching in Progress!!

1) My group and I have pretty much finished our planning. We have already talked to Mrs. Nylander and set up our class take over, for this Thursday and Friday. So the only thing we have to do is put our imagination to work!
2) In the next two weeks we just need to teach the Junior class about the entire senior year.
3) Our work will greatly influence the junior class. Our work will better help them prepare for all of the senior year activities. This will make me feel good about myself because I will be able to give the juniors a big advantage.

1) Our for this project is to Orient the junior class about the whole senior year experience. My group and I plan to explain the Ap Test, College Choices, and everything in between
2) The materials we would need would have to be my laptop and that's probably about it.
3) This week we have been discussing our presentation process and we will be planning to present next week to the junior class.
4) After we present and assess the class we will have taken notes and plan to come to class with a run down of how things went.

Study Update:4

Right now, our back table is trying to hold back our laughter because this is the easiest post you can do for credit. Well anyways back to the Ap test, I plan to study for it today on my way to a baseball game in San Luis. I plan on looking over old essay questions and trying to come up with at least an introduction for them.
