Happy Halloween Everyone!!! Today in Technology Class we finished learning about Isafe and how to be smart and stay safe while using the internet. We learned about things such as spamming and identity theft, and how to prevent things like this and other things that can happen on the internet from happening to us. We also started a new assignment called "Meet My Macbook." For this assignment we have to answer questions about how our Macbooks work and we also have to find one thing about the Macbook that we didn't know it could do.
Outside of Technology Class today, in American History today, we continued our studies about the colonies and things also happening in England at this time. We also did some Halloween trivia. In English we continued talking about complex sentences, in science we had a vocab test, and in Math we did problem set 37. After school some of the girls had basketball practice, some of the boys had wrestling practice, and everyone else, that's not in a sport, went to P.E.
So I hope everyone had a fun Halloween!! Until next time!! ~Morgan

Wed. Oct. 25 Blake

On Wednesday we talked about making a comic life. The comic life means what we like to do when we are not doing anything or it means what we are about in our every day life. The first thing you do is go to the hard drive. Then go to applications and go to comic life. When you are there you then pick a template. Then you can pick either some pictures or you can just write in the templates. After you do all that you can put speech bubbles by your picture or writing. Then you are probably going to be done and you can go to save as. You will be done and you can print it if you want to. Well that is what we did on Wednesday and I had a great time doing that. This is Blake Bauer saying so long everybody!

Yesterday in class we learned how to use the comic life that we have to do so the teacher can learn about what we like and what our personality is like. We have to look on the internet for pictures to put into our comic life. Doing the comic life is a lot of fun to do.

Let's try this again-- Information Literacy

OK, 8th graders. Now that we have had a good lesson on information literacy... including things like MAKING UP FALSE INFORMATION AND PUTTING IT ON THE WEB and POSTING INAPPROPRIATE THINGS ON THE WEB...maybe we should try this assignment again.

What do you think kids should know so that they know how to use the internet?

"If it's on the Internet, it must be true!"

What do you guys have to say about this statement? This morning I want you to start class by reading the following article, located at: http://www.edutopia.org/1638 Tell me what you think. Are teachers not doing enough to teach you how to evaluate what you find on the web? Check out the "spoof sites" and see if any of them are believable to you. Try the "Steps for Skeptics" with websites you have seen recently. Does it give you more insight into how they were created?

After reading the article, exploring the links, and reflecting on the topic, it is time for you to write about what you think.

Click on Comment and tell me about what you think about kids your age using the Internet and believing too much, or not enough, of what they see. **Make sure you leave your first name (and it wouldn't hurt to spell-check!) so that I can give you credit for this assignment.

See you Monday!
~Mrs. Morrow
