So...it looks like a few people took the last few days of class as a mini-vacation. The time that was given in class today will be the last in-class time that you will have to work on your Emerging Technology. HUGE REMINDER that the presentations will take place on Friday. Hopefully, the Web 2.0 tools that we looked at in class, such as Prezi and Evernote can help you work in a collaborative manner from home.
We will look at mainboards on Tuesday. Make sure you have the file from Monday's class downloaded and open on your desktop.
Culminating activity proposals are now overdue. Please hand them in now (or see me about the delay). The step-by-step instructions on how to build a Wii Controller Smartboard that we looked at in class can be found on this website.
I am very pleased by the progress we have made on the Bit x Bit Initiative. There are several systems that seem that they are in the last few moments of being prepared for distribution. Please remember to physically clean the case and screen using the provided vinegar solution, and attach a completed technician's report to the system (secured to the top with masking tape).
All proposals are now considered overdue. I would like to post all blog URLs to this website by the end of Tuesday's class (so please forward your links to my email).
As we flip our courses upside down, and look for opportunities for all of us to become both active learners and teachers, these are some sources that you might want to start looking at:
Raspberry Pi Community
There are thousands of awesome resources on the net that could directly apply to this class. As you expand your learning, please feel free to share any "cool" sites with me and I'll post them here for the rest of the class.
This will be the on-line binder for TEJ3/4MI
