TEJ2O Daybook: ePortfolio Requirements

TEJ2O wordcloud

To my TEJ2O students, this is where you will find the outline of your ePortfolio requirements:

At the time of this writing the outline is not complete. I will be adding one or two items every few days, so as not to overwhelm you.

Organizational tip #1: Create your pages in a folder named “Incomplete”, then move them to the proper location once they are complete.

Organizational tip #2: Bookmark the requirements page so you can refer to it often and easily.

TEJ2O, TGJ2O, TGJ3M, TGJ4M Daybook: Update ePortfolio on New Google Sites

We used to use the old Google Sites for our ePortfolios, but, even with the current limitations, will now use the new Google Sites for our ePortfolios.

Each student shares their ePortfolio with me as an editor, so I can edit their site if necessary, or when the feature gets added, to add comments to their site.

For students that have taken classes with me before, they create a menu for each class with their assignments as sub-menus below them. For students in one of my classes only, their main menu is their list of assignments for that class.

TEJ2O Daybook: Glossary Terms

TEJ2O Glossary Terms

Today in the TEJ2O Computer Technology class we’re going to be compiling a list of terms that potentially will be used in the students’ ePortfolio glossaries. You will find the Google Sheet here that we are using.

For accountability, students are asked to enter their first name and last initial. We only post the last initial because the post is publicly viewable.

Each student initially enters four terms. This may grow to five, depending on how they do.

I purposely don’t list all the potential categories because that enables some problem solving and communications amongst the students.

Update: getting students to simultaneously edit a Google Doc is always an interesting experiment. In the future, I think I will get the students to fill in a form and then we’ll dissect the results together.

Digital Literacy Resource — Teens’ Top 5 Technology Mistakes

Teens’ Top 5 Technology Mistakes _ CHOICES _ Scholastic.com

(This is an old post that has been moved to here from my previous blog.)

This morning I shared an article entitled “Teens’ Top 5 Technology Mistakes” with my BTT1O class. The five “mistakes” mentioned are:

  1. Forgetting to Log Out
  2. Right Message — Wrong Person
  3. Oversharing
  4. Losing Track of Your Phone
  5. Making Friends With Strangers

Reviewing the article gave us a great opportunity to share many stories, including:

  • students not logging out and other students sending crude messages from their Facebook account
  • students creating fake Snapchat accounts to use to get other students to send them inappropriate pictures
  • stories of students not being able to get jobs because of what they shared on their social media accounts
  • and others…

Photo Repair – Which Do You Like Best?

(Previously posted here on September 20, 2015)

A quick photo repair this morning. I’m not entirely satisfied with the final result, but I’m hoping the person I’m doing this for will still be happy. If my Photoshop skills were better I’m sure more could be done to improve it.

Which do you like best? The black and white, the one with the warming filter, or the one with the cooling filter?
