7th & 8th Grade technology students are working with a Web 2.0 collaborative tool called "Socrative." This online software enables the teacher to pose questions in a variety of formats and invite realtime student input. Surveys are being taken to determine each class's favorite fast food. It's been a bit of a food fight! The polling device is easy and fun to use, but it's real purpose is to understand how polling works and how the Internet is now a two-way street where users create content instead of just reading information.
Polling data will be used as a basis for working with Excel spreadsheets. Students will learn to input their data and then create a variety of graphs and charts from the data.
This blog will be used for class updates, lists of assignments, links to music and technology events in our area and other news from Mrs. Manion's World. It is designed as an aid and may not be up-to-date. It does not replace attention in class.
