You will work on IT Academy. Some of you should be able to finish the majority of your mandated lessons by the end of the class.
Leave your machines away..we need to talk about your collection attitude (yet again).
This is your new blog post. Click here and start typing, or drag in elements from the top bar.
TechNewsDaily just posted an interesting article about the hottest prospects in the job market. The future looks pretty bright for those who have the tech skills necessary to compete.
1) Make sure your computer works on the switch (w/ your cable).
2) Make sure your computer works w/ a partner's (w/ your cross over-cable).
3) Research with your partner a networkable game that's
a) free to download (legally..lol)..because of the restrictions w/ the firewall you may have to download a copy at home
b) works with the hardware in the room
c) can work in Linux (either in native mode or using an emulator)
4) Claim your game by writing it on the Smartboard. Once a game is claimed, it is off limits.
5) Practice setting up/playing/optimizing your game. Write these set-up instructions in a .txt file to be shared with the class, over the network
You have two days to complete the above. We will be studying the roll of servers on Thursday and Tuesday of the following week. The other two days next week will be playing games (tournament details to follow).
Don't forget to study for the test tomorrow (on Networking basics).
Today we will be finishing up the lecture on networking, and hopefully starting our practicum for this unit.
Do not forget that there will be a test on Wednesday on all materials that you have learned.
Thursday is your culminating activity day, so please be prepared to use the day productively...time is passing quicker than you think.
Let's get lots done today!
For those with "nothing to do" it would be a great time to update your blog, as I am evaluating them again this weekend (for the mid-term report)
For those of you who are struggling to find a culminating activity, or those of you who are looking for another, you should take a look at this site
I am away all day for a meeting, so this is an extra work period you can use to accomplish the following:
1) Update and maintain your blog
2) Work on your IT Academy courses (Windows I and II need to be done for Friday...Windows 7 Implementation is going to take you a little while..so you might want to get started on it).
3) Work on your culminating
4) Catch up on any work you have not yet finished. Mid-Term Report card marks and comments will be generated this weekend.
Like most Day 1s (and you'll have a bonus Day 1 on Friday), this is your opportunity to work on your culminating project. See me if you need any help. If you do not have something you can be working on for your final project, this is an excellent time for you to update your blog and work on your MS IT Academy courses.
For those of you playing around with Ubuntu (and other Linux distros), Gnome 3.0 has been released. You might want to play around with it, afterall it has been truly community based (and has also been "five years in the making"). I'd love to hear what you link about it. There is more information on the desktoplinux website
Just as the Bluewater District School Board starts to work on the process of rolling out Windows 7, there was a "changing of the guard" taking place in April. For the first time, Microsoft's newest Operating System finally unseated XP (and it's only down hill from here for it...). Some other interesting information also came from the data, such as less than 1% of the desktops are running Linux, and there are more Vista users than OS X.... (and what are those other 2% running? Windows 3.11? Dos 6.0?)
Today we will be watching and cheering on our classmates in the BWDSB Robotics competition. Best of luck to Riley, Brian, Aaron, and Mitch.
It's a Day 1..so that means that today is the day of the school week that you are allowed to work on your culminating activity. Unless otherwise scheduled, all Day 1s are "your days"..so please make use of them. If you need any 1-on-1 help, please make sure you take the opportunity that days like today provide.
If you do not want (or cannot for whatever reason) work on your C.A., please work on your blog, any work that you are behind in, or your MS ITAcademy courses.
This will be the on-line binder for TEJ3/4MI
