Presentation and Teamwork challenges

November 4, 2011 at 6:38 pm | Posted in Uncategorized | Leave a comment

The teams have started putting all of their webpages together and the websites are starting to work well with each other. It looks like one class has a mega review site that reviews entertainment in various areas and the other class is more a knowledge based website on various areas of entertainment. I had to work with the school system to figure out if the students can ftp from school. If they do actually ftp, they will really understand the underlying structure of the internet and the concept of an internet server which would be an invaluable lesson.

Since the teams have been working together for a while, I now see them getting a bit irritable with each other. Especially when it comes to agreeing what is valid content and what makes a webpage look professional. And since they are in teams there is a nice sense of competition that is improving quality.

I finally now have a working website for CS Principles: http://csprinciplesatnorth.yolasite.com
It links to my blog and my moodle site where I have all the lesson plans, projects etc. posted.
It is a nice place to showcase all my student projects.

In a month we have CS Ed Week. GATE is sponsoring a school wide technology competition. We are partnering withLanierHigh Schooland running the competition between the students of both schools. We are in the process of deciding categories, dates, registration forms, promotional activities, etc. Exciting times!
