Room 3209 is available for bookings period three and four this semester. Please contact me via email to book.
Please, no food or drink for students visiting the class. Ask the students to push in all chairs when leaving, and take any garbage with them. Do not let them disconnect any of the mice or keyboards (they must stay plugged in the back).
Please have enough work for the students so they aren’t playing games. If they are finished their daily assignment, please have an additional assignment ready for them.

Interested in taking a Science and Tech qualification course this summer? Here are all the AQs being offered at ETFO (online).
I recently had the pleasure of being in the audience for a presentation from Carol Arcus, Vice-President, The Association for Media Literacy (AML).
AML has many amazing resources for teachers at both their
website and their YouTube channel.
One of the highlights for me was their “EULA Project”, where they have taken many social media end-user licence agreements and converted them to plain English posters that can be displayed in your classroom for your students, all for free.
Here’s an example, posted in low-res only (see the link below for full-sized PDFs):
Snapchat EULA in Plain English
To see AML’s EULA Project in its entirety, visit
http://www.aml.ca/i-agree/ where you can download PDF versions of each EULA poster.
(Also see http://www.aml.ca/agency-and-privacy/ for additional information about this project.)

I always encourage students to use the personal Google account for school work so they still “own” the data after they leave high school.
But what if they haven’t, and they’re above to move on to a postsecondary school or the workplace?
There are basically two options:
Move your data to your personal account
Download your data
To move your data to a new account, just visit
https://takeout.google.com/transfer and enter the relevant information. Just be sure you have enough disk quota in your personal account or you may run into trouble.
To download your data, visit
https://takeout.google.com/settings/takeout and select the data you want to download. Note that this can take a long time, depending on how much data you have in your Google account.
Hover the cursor over “ACSE”.
