1. Continue working through the HTML introduction and play around with the practice the steps in the tutorial. Play around with web page creation and format, especially tables. Improve your table of contents page.
Work on mini-project 1
Create a folder for mini-project-1. Put the mini-project-1 folder inside of the folder where you have your Table of Contents page. Call the folder "miniproj1". The first page of your project should always have the file name index.html.
Come as close as you can to finishing your first web page mini-project. Be sure to save your work frequently. Note that you do not yet know how to do a number of the things that will be needed to complete the project. We have plenty of time to work on this. However, the more ideas and content you can pull together now, the easier the rest will be.
Remember to bring photos to class for scanning or in digital format (or scan them at home). You might prefer to use a digital camera for photos you need. You should have your USB flash drive for saving your work or use your Google Docs space online. Also bring any sound that you want to include in your project: your voice or a tape or CD or mp3. Do NOT bring in LPs! Remember them ?
We'll be working with images and sounds as well as putting pages online in the next two classes.
3. Online discussion
Log onto your Blackboard / eLearning space for ICC 523. Look under the DISCUSSIONS tab in the left hand column, and follow instructions to contribute to the FLTEACH: On-line professional development discussion (You can open the article in PDF format using Adobe Acrobat Reader or you can right-click on the link and save a copy). Note that this assignment includes your answers to 5 questions and at least 2 comments on the responses of others; follow directions.
You can access eLearning through myRedDragon:
3. Google Voice
Why would you want students to be able to respond orally to questions outside of the classroom? Think about that for a minute.
A. Then click on the Google Voice Widget below and leave a message (your audio homework) answering the question.
(How to create a Widget: https://www.google.com/voice?pli=1#webcall)
Begin your answer with: "Bonjour monsieur. Je m'appelle Snow White." (If you prefer, you can use Spanish or English. Also, if your name is not Snow White, please use your real name.)
Leave your message and then hang up.
B. Call this same Google Voice number: (607) 301-0834. Leave your name again and tell me if you prefer using the web Widget to your telephone, and why.
This site lets you create your own online activities where text, audio & video cues can be used to get oral or written responses from students. You can have 6 assignments for free. Go here to answer two questions about what you want for breakfast in your best French. Or if you don't speak French, use English.... http://lingtlanguage.com/ponterio/
