BECOME A REGULAR LEARNER
We need to stay in the habit of learning. Please log in at least once a day (when you are able) and focus on your studies (doesn't always have to be this class). If you don't stay in constant contact you will get lost and left behind, and I DO NOT WANT THAT TO HAPPEN TO ANYONE.
If you haven't filled out the form in your email that I sent yesterday, do so now..or you won't be getting Adobe Creative Suite. It's that simple. Please TEXT your friends and check in with them and remind them to do so...
The AWE3MI lesson plan will be posted later tonight/tomorrow morning. It is designed to take you a week (or so). Make sure you work through all the materials BEFORE starting the assignment. Email me IF you don't have access to a camera of some sort (and yes, for this once in a lifetime pandemic, I am going to let you use your cellphones (if ABSOLUTELY necessary).
AWE4MI students I still need you to tell me what points assignments you are working on.
E-LEARNING IN A PANDEMIC
Hi All. These are very strange times, and we are ALL trying to figure out how to move forward during unprecedented times. We will all need to support and be patient with one another.
There is no reason to worry about the status of the yearbook. We will revisit what we need to do and how we will get there on May 4th (the day school is supposed to resume).
We are continuing on with the curriculum, and there is learning that needs to take place! IF YOU HAVEN"T ALREADY DONE SO, login to your Office365 account and send me an email. IF you forgot your password/login send an email from your non-school account to firstname.lastname@example.org. I can change your password remotely, and send you back the log-in info you need. I can do this for your friends/family members if they are stuck in the same situation (they do not need to be my student).
I need to know if you have access to a computer at home. Email me IF YOU DO NOT have a computer, and are relying on your smartphone or a tablet to access this material.
AWE3MI we will be jumping to the Pnotography unit, and working through some basic concepts, terminology and techniques. You can complete the assignment on you cellphone if necessary, but if you have a "real" camera at home, I would rather you challenge yourself to use it.
AWE4MI students who are not in the Photography stream (who I know all have cameras), please contact me and let me know if you have access to Adobe Creative Suite. I would also like you to take a look at your points and list two projects you'd like to complete this month. IF none of those assignments is feasible given our situation, we will come up with some alternative work that you can do that will still stretch your creative and design muscles.
Our first lessons will be posted on Wednesday. Expectations are that you do your best to try and spend 3 hours a week on each of your courses. If possible, please push yourself to do a little more, and take some creative risks. You may find that working with the Artistic side of your brain helps break up some of the boredom/uneasiness/etc of being socially-isolated.
At no time are you to break any of the social-distancing recommendations or put yourself at risk. I want you to be safe and healthy. We will get through this!
