Global Literacy Project and other work (from semester one)

Welcome Back!!!  You have approximately 4 1/2 months left in this class and it is super important that you are able to reflect on and explain how our projects have improved your digital literacy skills and also how our projects developed  you as a global citizen.  With that said, I want to know how you feel about past work in this class and what your hopes are for the future.

This semester we will be revisiting our proposals and making presentations to create change about our proposal topics.  We will also be creating products that will inform younger grades of internet safety.  Here's what I would like to know from you so that as we plan for this semester I know what to consider:

1) Explain what you have enjoyed most about this class (it can be a project, an activity, a particular way the class is run, working in networks...etc).  Please be as specific as possible and include as many details as possible. (3+ sentences)

2) Explain one thing you would add or change if you could. Please be as specific as possible and include as many details as possible.  (3+ sentences)

3) Explain one skill you really hope to improve in this class and how you think we should develop that skill in this class (typing, video editing, collaborating, digital writing, digital reading...etc.) (3+sentences)

  1. In this class I really enjoyed presenting to the middle school. I really enjoyed this because I did not come to MIT for middle school, so this gives me a chance to go and see how it looks like and still be able to interact with the students. I also enjoyed doing the proposal, because it gave me more practice in typing. One thing I would add to this class is having our own blog that maybe everyone in our group can respond to. Meaning, we could put up our own questions & our group mates can answer. One skill that I really hope to improve in this class is my typing skills. I feel like whenever I type, I get nervous and my hands get to stiff. I can develop this skill by just typing more proposals.

  2. 1. I really like how the class is set up into Networks. This allows us to communicate better as classmates. It helps because because if we need help we can ask our network. I also like the Digital Literacy project in our world. It helped me again work as a group in order to keep everything organized. It was actually a lot of fun too.

    2. I don't really think I would change anything in this class. Its actually my favorite class because I think its fun and well taught.

    3. I would love to increase in my typing skills because compared to others my skills are poor. I can't type without looking and even if I look I can't type really fast.

    2. I agree with Bruno that the class is really good to be set up into networks because my classmates are there in any case I need help. I wouldn't change much in the class either, it is ran good. And I would also love to increase my typing skills at is something that could really help me later on in life.

    3. I agree with Bruno because I, also like how we work as networks to help and support our classmates. its also a great way to understand each other.

  3. Some things that I have enjoyed in this class is that we get to work with networks and we get to all share our ideas with each other and we get to combine our ideas together and come up with things that everyone in the network can enjoy. I also liked how we got to create a book fair. I think that putting a booth up and thinking of different things to sell was pretty challenging but I think that since everyone in my network got to put there own touch to it we were all happy about the way the book fair came to be. One thing that I would like to change is making sure that for the book fair we actually do whats on the calender instead of changing things that are due or stuff that need to be done. I think that I really want to be better at is in collaborating. By that I mean that I want to be able to talk to everyone in this class without hesitation and to be more talkative with everyone and just be comfortable with them to share my ideas with. I also want to be able to type correctly with out looking at my key board or always making mistakes.

  4. 1. I enjoyed most working on the digital literacy project. It was a lot of fun to organize the event and make our own booth. I really liked going to classrooms and presenting to them about our event. It made me more confident with my presentation skills. I really like how we are independent in this classroom, I like doing stuff at my own pace better. Working in networks is also helpful, sometimes you don't know what to do, but there's always someone there who could help you.

    2. There isn't really much I would add or change about this classroom, but I would include more lessons like the one with the virtual world. It really helped me learn things, like what is a cpu and what computer is best, and the consequences about cyber bullying.

    3. I would really like to improve my video editing skills as well as collaborating. I don't really make videos or edit them that much so it would be really cool if I got a lot better at that. I would also like to improve my collaborating skills by making sure everyone in my network contributes to what we do, because there is always someone who doesn't do anything in projects.

  5. Something I really enjoyed about working in this class was working in networks. Every time there was a project there is always a specific role for someone and you really only have to worry about your role. But there are also times where that person doesn't do their role, but they will be graded for doing it or not and won't go towards your grade.

    Something I would change is maybe to get a new network after working on a project. This will give us a chance to work with different people. It will also let us see who we work best with and who we do not for the future.

    One skill I really hope to improve in this class is my typing. I think we should continue doing the typing web and then at every week do typing test. Its a great way to see how we've improved.

    1. I agree with what you said that you enjoy working in networks and how we should change them after we are done with a certain project. As well as practicing our typing skills more often.

  6. 1. The thing that I enjoyed the most in this class is that we are able to work with a network and communicate with them. I enjoyed this because were able to share ideas that we have. If we get a big project and we divide it is good that were able to communicate with each other if we need help or have a question, and that what i enjoyed the most.

    2. I don't think theirs things that need to be changed

    3. One skill that I hope to improve in this class is to become expert in typing. I want to know how to type without looking and type fast as well without making so many mistakes.

    1. I agree with you because I also enjoyed working as a network and also sharing our ideas and also on a project we split up the work so we wont have only one person doing the project.

  7. what i have enjoyed most about this digital literacy class is the fact that we as a network bond a lot. so when we need some help there are people who can help us out, meaning that we dont do things alone. i like that there are people who always helps us out and we help eachother and we share our ideas.

    one thing i would change from this class is try to finish my work here at school.'
    i would try to finish my work during school because if i need help i can ask my peers and the teacher for help that way i do my wokk the correct way.i would also try to finish my work during school because sometimes when i get home i forgot the work that i was suppose to do.

    one skill in which in hope to improve is my typing. i hope i improve my typing because in college typing is very useful and also in life depending what career you get. i can also use typing for school essays, projects, class work , and many other things.

  8. 1) Explain what you have enjoyed most about this class (it can be a project, an activity, a particular way the class is run, working in networks...etc). Please be as specific as possible and include as many details as possible.

    Something I enjoyed most about this class is the Global Literacy Project because everyone had an organized network with different roles so we can perform as a team and get things done correctly and in a neat manner. Everyone was able to get the theme done in their network as well as making designs, booths, and coming together with a solution to our community. The way the networks were set up to have everyone with a task and being able to get work done with a reliable plan was easy and efficient. The outcome was successful as well as fun.

    2)Explain one thing you would add or change if you could. Please be as specific as possible and include as many details as possible.

    One thing I want to change is the amount of time received for some projects. I feel some projects go to slow and some are rushed. I feel if we reflect more often, as we do now so more work can get done better on plans for future projects. I feel the time is one issue that we can improve on as a class.

    3) Explain one skill you really hope to improve in this class and how you think we should develop that skill in this class (typing, video editing, collaborating, digital writing, digital reading...etc.)

    One skill I really want to improve in this class is my typing because sometimes I slip up and begin to type slow. Sometimes my fingers are not on the right keys and I have to look at the keyboard to find it. I feel that if I work on this more often in class, than I will be able to type faster and more efficiently. The tests would be easier to take

    3. I agree with you in that we need more time on the projects because some are being rushed sometimes.I feel that we should have more time in class to finish and talk to our group for more ideas.

    4. I agree with the typing. I believe that I do need more practice on the typing because I do mess up a lot. I also agree with the timing of the projects because I feel like we are being rushed in order to finish on time.

  9. 1. What I have enjoyed about this class is the networks and the projects. The project I enjoyed the most was the Book Fair, I enjoyed that project because we as a network worked together and raise money for a school in Costa Rica. I enjoy the networks and how they let everyone in the group put in their opinion and contribute to the projects we have.
    2. One thing i would add is more field trips, to a place that has to do with the topics we are talking about in the class. Also more class activities , so we can all see other peoples perspectives to something other then our networks. Other then that i would not want to change anything.
    3. One skill i would like to improve on is my typing. I would like to improve on my typing because I would like like to learn to type faster and also not look at the keyboard to much. I would like to type more accurately not making as many mistakes.

  10. Some things that I have enjoyed about this class is how we work as a network to do presentations together,workings as a network.When we work as a network we use all of our ideas and combine them together to see which ideas we can use to do either our network project or anything similar to that. In my opinion, helping others in your network is a good thing because if they don't understand we have people in our group to help us out instead of every single student in the class go to the teacher and tells them what to do because she had already explained it. If I can add one thing it would be to do more projects with our network.One skill that I can improve is typing so i can learn how to type fast without looking. In order for me to do that its gonna take more practice. I am gonna be trying my best so I can reach that goal.

    1. I agree with you because I also enjoyed working as a network. Its true that that when we work as a network we get to combine are ideas and we get to decide the best choice. I also agree that when one of the person in the network needs help, that its good to help. Projects with are network would be good just not to many hah.

  11. 1) I enjoyed many things in the class from being in it and participating in the activities. What I enjoyed most is that you get to work with lots of other students in your network to be able to ask questions and help. I also enjoyed the projects which took a while to do because there were somethings I stumbled on and fixed eventually.

    2) There aren't many things I would change from this class. If I had to change one thing it would be communicating with other students prior to beginning a project to brainstorm ideas. This would come in use for the students who usually have trouble starting up on their projects.

    3) One skill I really hope to improve on in this class is to be able to use a computer properly when writing an essay, proposal, or any paper. Typing is also another skill i will want to work on but i will improve on that skill slowly. For typing skills, we should develop that skill in class and by going on typing web daily and typing test daily as well to get faster and better results than usual.

  12. What I enjoyed most about this class was the Global literacy event that we had. I liked this project because it was fun when we had sell the books because at some booth's there was good books. The most interesting part was when we had to research our continents.
    One thing that I would change is the way every thing was organized because it was messy in the MPR. I would change that because some tables were not organized in a way that you would see every book at a table. Also some tables were put in a way that people wold crowd one spot.
    One skill that I would want to improve is my typing. I would like to improve it because I can type as much as i should be. Also I would like to improve it by not having to look at the key board most of the time.

  13. 1) I would have to say that the thing I enjoyed most about this class we all worked in networks to help each other out. It helped what seemed to be a lot of work become something easy to tackle together all at once. It also helped gain an understanding with our teammates and ensured that we were all on the same page.

    2) One thing I would probably change is the way groups are sometimes assigned. I understand that you want people to actually work but an assigned group usually feels a kind of weird tension. A tension that doesn't exist when friends already know one another. however, its good to meet new people so it should probably stay the way it is.

    3) One skill I really hope to improve and develop is my typing. I feel like you can get ahead in life if you know how to type at a decent speed since computers are everywhere. I think a good way to develop it in class is to continue dong whay we're doing with typing web and the typing tests.

    1. Preston, for #2, i would have to disagree with you on that. Randomly chosen networks can be really fun, and you would never expect this much creativity, collaboration, and life in one network! But you do have a good suggestion... :)

  14. The project I enjoyed the most is the digital literacy book fair. I liked the actual event day, it was really festive, successful, and educational. That day I bought many books and I had so much fun trying to get people interested. If I could add something I would want more opportunities to present to classrooms. I think I helps get over stage fright and makes me a better speaker. I like helping others and many kids understand topics better when it is explained in the perspective of someone their own age. I like using things like Prezi and PowerPoint to creatively express my ideas.A skill I would like to improve is creating presentations. I enjoy creating them but, they end up looking very messy and unorganized. I hope to develop this skill by doing a class assignment involving a powerpoint.

  15. 1) Something that I've enjoyed about this class is working in networks. I enjoy working in networks because you get to interact with your group members. The group projects get done because everybody is working and we help one another.
    2) Something that I would change is not leaving the backpacks in the closet. I would change that because everyone has a hard time getting their bags when its time for dismissal. Everyone gets clumped up in one space and i don't think its a very good process.
    3)One skill that I really ope to improve on is video editing. I want to improve on this skill because I hope to make youtube videos in the future. I would also like to use video editing for projects and that way it could be much easier to create a project.

    1. I agree with #2 since this is what happens at the end of class and its very inconvenient for everyone trying to leave and it's a nuisance for those who want to get their backpack.

  16. I have enjoyed making projects in our network the most because it help our network learn skills from one another. This is also because we always get 2-4 months in advance to complete the assigned project with our network. What i enjoy most of projects is how our network collaborates with each other to get things done, for example the Global Literacy Project. We had to prepare books and our booth for the Global Literacy Event (GLE for short) on December 10th, 2013 and December 11th for the students of VISA.
    I would not change anything that about how this class is passed. The class is well organized and runs well. If anyone has a problem with the class, then they do not accept the fact that the requirements for this class are very simple: Do your Classwork, Homework, and Follow Directions.
    I would really like to work on my typing skills this year. I am still having problems at typing without looking down at the keyboard. I would also like to learn more on video editing. This is because I use a program that is a little bit out of date with everyone else. I would like to learn more on the topic, and improve the skill i already know as well.

  17. 1. The thing I like the most about this class is how we get the chance to work in networks. I like how we get the opportunity to interact with our other classmates. We get the chance to know more about them and make new friends other than the ones that we already have.
    2. To be honest I don't think we should change anything. Last semester, everything seemed to work out smoothly. So I don't think there's a need to add or change something in our class.
    3. One skill I would like to improve in would be my typing. I could develop this skill by doing better and practicing on the typing tests. Also, working on typing web.

  18. 1) I really loved the way the networks had to work together on big things like the Global Literacy Event. Even though we worked in our separate networks, we all contributed to one cause. I would like to see something like that happen again.

    2) I would want to have some sort of random game, job, assignment, etc that would set us into different groups. It would bring variety to the whole network and if that one job, game, etc fails, you wouldn't use it again and make another one up. What we would do to pick the networks every time a change is in order would either be up to you or up to the class. Think about it.

    3) I would like to focus on video editing because I would like to edit videos, like the name implies. I seems like fun. Aside from that, I would like to improve on my typing, again. It's been months since I've used typing web and I would really like to speed up my typing. That could be set as homework.

  19. I have enjoyed many things about this class, such as being able to work in a network with friends because i like to work with other people. I do not like working by myself on projects. Also, working in networks teaches you how to be responsible. What i would like to add in this class is to have a little more time to read on our books. Time goes really fast because we get so little time to read. Everything else is perfect in this class, that is the only thing i would change, more reading. I would like to improve my skill in typing more faster, because i want to be able to finish work more quickly. Also, i want to improve how to do video editing.

      2)one thing I would change is to have a random day of the week were we could just socialize for like 5-10 min give us a little break towards the end of the class. That would be great!
      3) I Would like to know how to do video editing because I really don't know much. I think that knowing howto edit videos could be helpful in class projects.

  20. 1) In this class I really liked the projects we did (not the proposal). I liked how we got to work together as a group.Everyone had their own responsibility.

  21. What I have enjoyed mostly about this class would be.

I would like to make better would be to improve in my typing skills. Because i am not such a good typer

  22. 1. I really enjoyed the last project we did last semester. I really liked how we learned about the different literacy levels all around the world. It was also nice how we were raising the literacy levels in our own community. Another thing is networks, I like how we can work with each other and help each other out.
    2. If anything could be added or changed I wouldn't like it. I really like how things are. I don't think anything should be added or changed.
    3. One skill I would like to improve is my typing. At the end of this class I would like to be able to type at a good speed without having to look at the keyboard. I also would like t use all my fingers because right now i only use my first fingers in each hand and my thumb.

  24. 1.In this class I specifically enjoyed having an event in which we gave knowledge to people that we known our are acquaintances with. I would love to have another event just like it someday in the future for this class. Another reason I liked was because we were able to work with partners and we were able to have confidence in our group to complete our project. i prefer to work on project with other team members other then working on it by myself.
    2. One thing that In would add to this class would be to present to the elementary things that we have learned in our class and would be as of help to them in their future. Something that I would take out of this class would be to have more time typing for the fact that practice makes perfect.
    3. In this class I hope to develop my skills in my typing because I am not very good at typing without looking. Something I would also prefer to be better would be to be great at video making because I see myself using in the future.

    1. I agree with the idea of presenting to the elementary and spreading the knowledge we learn with them because it is beneficial for the both of us. I agree with the typing as well, many of us don't practice our typing skills outside of school.

  25. 1. What I have enjoyed most in this class is our ability to work in networks. I think that it makes the class more laid-back and fun, while making learning more easier because you have at least 5 more people who can help you. Also, the constant change of networks allows you to build a bond with different people in the classroom.
    2. I'm not the type of person who changes things for my personal pleasure. I would keep this class the way it is. If the class happens do happen to change, then I would just go with it.
    3. One skill that I definitely want to improve is my typing skills. I feel that typing is becoming more and more important nowadays, especially because our school is based on technology. Typing is the main way for me to work more efficiently in the growing use of electronics.

    1. I agree with your explanations because we bond with people that we barely talk to. I also agree with the typing as well, many of us don't practice our typing outside of school, when we should. Typing will become easier through out our life, since our school is based on technology.

  26. 1) I enjoyed helping and participating in the book event because it helped kids and teens increase their literacy level in school and helps support a school being built in Costa Rica

    2) One activity I would add is have more modules for us and for the next years class. The modules were fun and educational.

    3) One skill I hope to improve is typing speed.

    1. 1)The thing I've enjoyed most about this class so far is the collaborating and the freedom. Mainly the freedom to create a product that we are completely reliable for. and collaborating with teammates- building friendships.
      2) I don't feel I need to change anything.
      3) One skill I hope to improve upon immensely would be my typing overall. I would like to become a faster typist, as well as more accurate.

  34. 1) I really liked the book fundraiser. We did a lot of book selling that was for a good cause. It was really fun because we raised money for those who wanted to get educated.
    2) We should get longer time to get our stuff done such as projects, class work, and homework. We should also do more projects that have to do with presentations to other schools. We should have more time to do projects.
    3) My skills have improved because I know how to type better than the first time I started. I also know how to make presentations. I know how to make a slide show and how to edit it.

  36. 1. What I have enjoyed about this class is that we were able to do projects in groups.The also I also like that we are able to learn how to work the computer and how to do different activities on the computer as well. Then I also like that I like to be able to get used to typing so then I am able to be a fast typer.

    2. I believe that everything is fine as it is because I have nothing that I would change about this class. I like the way everything is organized in the classroom when we come in everyday. But one thing I can change is that if we can more time to work in groups in order to have time to finish everything.

    3. One skill I would want to improve on this class is on video editing. The reason is because I find it complicated in editing a video and putting it on our own blog. Then I find it complicated because I haven't really gotten used to doing editing on technology.

  41. I enjoyed all the projects we did in the class. Presenting is a lot of fun, but I would like to do more global projects like Costa Rica, raising money for literacy. I also refer working in a network more than working individually. It helps me improve my communicate skills and it's fun. Proposals are interesting.

Being independent doesn't really help get much ideas down but with a group everyone has different examples and different opinions and that way we learn more. Like they say 2 heads are better than one. It is also much funner talking with new people.

    2. For this semester i would change our end of the year project to go and present to kids of younger grades. It sounds really fun and would be really helpful for the kids to know about all the lessons on everfi. I really want to do it. It will make us more globally competent in our community.

  53. 1) Explain what you have enjoyed most about this class (it can be a project, an activity, a particular way the class is run, working in networks...etc). Please be as specific as possible and include as many details as possible. (3+ sentences)

    The project I enjoyed most about this class was the book fair event because I got to interact with different people. I got to sell books and buy food and explore the other booths that had interesting things. I also really like the poem reading, from those people from Pacoima Beautiful. I got to buy books at a very cheap price. I also got to meet Ms. Espinoza’s mom.

    2) Explain one thing you would add or change if you could. Please be as specific as possible and include as many details as possible. (3+ sentences)

    I would change our networks. I would like to be able to pick who is in my network, rather than be assigned seats. I would like to have better communication with the people in my network, to be able to rely on them for help.

    3) Explain one skill you really hope to improve in this class and how you think we should develop that skill in this class (typing, video editing, collaborating, digital writing, digital reading...etc.) (3+sentences)

    A skill that I really hoped to improve on in this class is typing. I would really like to be able to typing 55 words per minute without looking at my hands and/or keyboard.

    2)One thing i would add would be to add more module lessons because they were entertaining and fun. They weren't only fun but educational too, the rights from wrongs. They seemed like life lessons which is good because you could know what happened to you if you choose the right decision.

  76. 1. What I liked most about the class 1st semester was the book fair. I liked the book fair the most because I got to help the community by informing them about how to get more literate. I'm helping them get more literate because I gave them library card applications, which meant they could get more involved with reading books.
    2. What I would probably change from the class is the groups. I would change the groups because when you get the choice to sit with whoever you want, you know that that person will either help you in your studies or affect your grades negatively. Also, once in a while, when you finish your work, you don't get to talk to anyone except the person next to you.
    3. I think we should probably work more on video editing because there is many projects in our future high school years that will need videos. So, for future videos, you will need to know how to video edit really well if you want the good grade. I think it would improve in our education because another reason for this could be if you want to be in a job that involves video editing.

    1. I disagree with what you said about the seat arrangement because if we were given the chance to pick our seats we would chose people that will distract us from getting our work done. Also the seats are fine because you get to talk to new people you may have not even talk to in the past. The seats are fine for right now because getting assigned seats help get work done because the people you sit with won't distract you from getting work done.

  77. 1) One thing that I have enjoyed most in this class is going to the forum and having you explain what we are going to do, sharing, and reading. I like how what we have to do is very clear. So all we have to do is do it and I usually don't have to ask any questions, so it leaves me more time to do my classwork.

    2) One thing I would change is when you print out the agendas, I see no need for the agendas to be printed out if they're already online. I think it is just a waste of paper, unless it it recycled paper. But, otherwise I don't see why there is a need to print out the agenda and I would most definitely change that.

    3) One skill I would really like to improve on in class is video editing. I think we should develop that skill by actually creating videos to show or explain something just to practice the skill. It would be cool if you showed some more video editing software and how to get to it.

    3. What I think that we should work on more is the GPS because that is a big part of high school. It has a lot to do with our goals and we need to figure out what they truly are. The GPS can help when you go to college so it really matters.

  80. 1. The activity I enjoyed most in this class was the Global Literacy Project, it allowed us to take action and help our community by selling books to raise literacy levels. We also raised money to help build a high school for students in Costa Rica.

    2. One thing I would add to last semester would be the typing web lessons, they were very helpful in teaching us how to become a better typer. Without the lessons the typing tests have become more of a challenge.

    3. One skill I really hope in improving during this semester would be my typing. Typing will help me thrive better in life, it is a skill that will help me throughout my life.

  81. 1.) What I enjoyed most about this class was when all the networks banned together to make our literacy awareness event. I like how we managed to organize the event and managed to handle the people who came. However the best part of the event was that we raised money for a new school and created awareness about literacy.

    2.) So far the class system has proven to be effective and effecient. Thus leading to the conclusion that nothing has to be changed . The class should remain as is with its system untouched.

    3.) One skill I hope to improve in class in class is typing. Hopefully I wish we could incorperate this skill more to serve as practice for this skill. It would be great to apply this skill because it has various uses that could be helpful in the future.

  82. 1) What I have enjoyed the most in the first semester of digital literacy is working on projects with our networks. It gives us the opportunity to collaborate and get to know each other while completing classwork. For example, when we did the global literacy project back in December to spread the awareness of literacy and to raise money to help construct a school.

    2) This class is very well systematized, everything is done in an orderly manner. There is absolutely nothing I would change regarding the way everything is managed. Although, if I had the opportunity to add a day at the end of the month or possible after every two weeks in which we thoroughly check if we have turned in all of the assignments assigned, I would.

    3) One skill I would really hope to improve would be my ability to research on reliable websites and check their credibility. Researching sounds pretty simple and straightforward, but it isn’t. Many of us presume that mostly everything on the internet is authentic. But is it really? I don’t think so! I think a great way to improve in this skill is to be assigned research projects where we don’t research anything but what is on the website.

  83. 1) I enjoyed many things about this class last semester was the global literacy project because we got to learn about other continents/countries while we were having fun with our network working on painting the banners, gathering books, and planning out some things. Another thing I liked about this project is that we divided the work equally.

    2) I would probably change the typing lessons to second semester since over the winter break not many people would probably practice or might forget everything.

    3) The skill I hope to improve on the most is the ability to type without looking while being fast.

  84. 1. The thing that I enjoyed most about this class was the Global Literacy Project because I was able to see how literacy levels are affected by a certain topic in that country. Throughout the project I was able to get information on how literacy levels are affected by the legal system in Rome. This project help me become aware that there are many different literacy levels around the world. Also it helped me bring awareness to this issue.

    2. Honestly there is nothing that I would change because everything in this class runs smoothly. In this class we have choices and that help keep the classroom organize. Everything in this class is fine because the work you give us is fun and easy to complete.
    3. The skill I hope to improve on is getting better at my typing skills because I can sometimes type without looking at the keyboard and I don't use the home row keys to type. I think we can develop this skill by using more of the typingweb.com lessons because that is helping me improve. Another one would be by taking at least a seen typing test once a month. That is what I think can improve my typing skills.

  85. 1.) What I have enjoyed most about this class is the fact that we were able to work in networks to help each other out, also because we presented to middle school students. also because we organized a global literacy event from scratch.

  86. 1) I enjoyed the project we did where we wrote proposals for a topic we felt should be more noticed and changed. This project helped to get our ideas out and show how we felt about a topic. We also got to somewhat spread the word about important topics.

    2) Something I feel should be added are more projects where we get to take a problem and get people to notice it.

    3) A skill I hope to acquire in this class is to be able edit videos and create a website.

  87. 1) Throughout the school year I've really enjoyed the entire class itself. Although there are countless things that I've liked so far my favorite has been meeting in the forum. I like how we all unite as a class and share our opinions, suggestions, and ideas as a large group. I feel more confident and comfortable with the lesson or whatnot.
    2) I can honestly say that this class is one of the best classes I've ever taken. I don't have many complaints or things I'd change about this class. The only thing I would suggest is continue having the typing web lessons. They were extremely effective and helpful to me and i think to many of my classmates as well.
    3) One skill I really want to improve on is my typing skills! I know that with more practice I will be able to reach my goals and type fast and accurately. We can develop this skill in class by simply continue having typing web lessons and tests. Maybe even dedication Tuesdays to just typing! Since typing correctly and fast is essential, I think it is important to dedicate time to practice it.

  88. 1. One thing I enjoyed from this class was the Global Literacy event. I liked the way we had to get things done on our own with our networks. The way we had our own booth, and our own leaders. How everyone of us had a task.

    2. One thing I would change would be having assigned seats. Yes, we would have assigned or chosen networks but we should be able to sit on which ever computer. The reason would be because sometimes we need a specific person's help.

    3. A skill I want to improve in this class is my typing. Last semester, I was doing very well but over the break I lost my skills. I suggest, we take a typing test everyday as we walk in as a warm up. Or maybe keep completing the levels on typing web.

  89. 1. One thing I enjoyed from this class was the Global Literacy event. I liked how we were put into networks and were held responsible for the whole event and getting things done. Having networks really helped, because we could rely on one another to get things done quicker.
    2. I honestly don't think anything should be changed or added, this class is good just the way it is.
    3. I would personally like to improve on my typing skills. Although I can type at a decent rate, I still have trouble typing without looking and making mistakes. Typing web and Typing Tests have helped me, and are still helping me improve my typing skills. I just need to learn to not look down as much.

  90. One thing I enjoyed from the class was fundraising money by doing a book fair to built a school In Costa Rica so kids can finish their education. I think what should be changed is having more field trips because we have one been to one. I personally like to improve my typing skills because I sorta know how to type good but I want to learn how to type fast without looking at the keyboard.

  91. 1) In this class I have liked the way we get to pick who we can work with for different projects and activities. I really enjoyed the global literacy event because we actually got to show people in our community what we are capable of helping the community and raising money for the school in Costa Rica. I also like the idea of presenting to younger students in the elementary or middle school, for example, to get the word out for the global literacy event we had.
    2) Something I would recommend changing is making every classwork assignment due by the end of the day instead by the end of the period. Many students don't get a chance to finish all their classwork during class, especially big classwork assignments that are worth a lot of points. In my personal opinion, I don't like the idea of being rushed constantly.
    3) In this class I would like to improve on my typing without the constant urge to look down at the keyboard. I would also want to learn more about video editing since I'm satisfied about the different ways to make any video you make better and professional. I want to be able to learn more about the dangers of viruses because it is a big issue with tons of computers and I would like to learn how to prevent them.

  92. 1) One really huge thing I enjoyed was the book fair project. The first reason why I enjoyed it was because had a chance to collaborate with my peers. There were certain difficulties with receiving books but at the end we gathered up quite a lot and made the book fair outstanding! The second reason why I loved the whole project was because I not only helped raise literacy levels in the community but I also helped gather money to build a school in Costa Rica.

    2) There isn't really any thing I would change in this class. You're doing your job as a teacher and giving the whole 9th grade class the knowledge we need to succeed and pass your class.

    3) The main thing I'm focusing on this semester is my typing. I have room for improvement on my typing skills. One way we can focus and develop the kids typing skills are to do typing tests more often and break the habit of looking down at the keys. Another way is to make typing web a bigger focus in the Digital Literacy class.

  93. 1) What I enjoyed about this class is how much we work in a team. I love how Ms. Espinoza run the class perfectly. She gives us an assignment and ask us till when it is due, and the student finish it promptly. The grading system is very fair and I enjoyed how we can have independence in finishing our work. I also like how we did The Global Literacy Fair. It made me feel in touch with my community and throughout the whole project I learned so much. This is class is my favorite no doubt, I really get my work done with independence and I cooperate well everyday with my classmates.

    2)I feel we should add more projects that involve us working more with the younger schools and create more multimedia projects. Overall I feel the class is very well run.

    3)I really hope to improve in my typing and my experience with working with different online programs like prezi etc.
    As I continue this class, my skills have been improving tremendously. I do want to try harder everyday to accomplish all my goals.

    1. I agree that this class is run very well, it is organized and I really enjoy working in teams. The Global Literacy event was exciting and I learned very much about Paris. I would love to add more projects that get us to interact with younger students. My typing also needs to improve and I want to learn to use online programs to edit videos.

  94. 1. The thing I have most enjoyed about this class was the global literacy event we held. It was interesting learning about literacy levels in other cities besides the one we live in and it really got us working as a community. I also have enjoyed working in networks because you always have someone to help you and you really bond over time.
    2. One thing I would like added would be another major project such as the global literacy event. I believe it turned out very well and we sold many books. This project made us go out into our community to communicate with others which was an obstacle I overcame.
    3. I really would like to improve my typing because I am constantly glancing at the keyboard. I would like to leave my freshman year knowing I can type at an expert level. To develop this skill I will work hard when we have typing sessions and try to work on typing outside of school. I would also like to learn to edit videos because I feel it could come in handy and filming is an interest of mine.

    1. I totally agree that working in groups helped us bond and get our work done and that the global literacy event was enjoyable. I can't say that I agree that we should have had more big projects because the digital literacy event was so huge already, but, different strokes for different folks. I also absolutely agree that we should hone our typing skills. It is a very important skill to have in the technological age.

  95. 1) During the past semester I really enjoyed sharing about our favorite blogs because it involves technology and what we like to research while we are in the internet. Another reason I like it is because I was able to be aware of what I was missing out on. I also got to improve my communication skills because I felt okay talking about the topic.

    2) One thing I would like to add is to do a persuasive presentation on an opinion we have. This would make it easy because we would know what to research on and get to use technology. And because the project is easy we won't need help.

    3) In this class I learned how to type. Before I had this class I had to do chicken typing and look at my fingers constantly. However by taking this class my score went up from 12 to 24.

  96. Some of the things that I have enjoyed so far of the class is that you let us work independently. You trust that will get our work done in time by the end of the period.Another thing that Like is that we get to choose who we sit with because we feel more comfortable when asking them a question or if we need help.Something that I would want to change is to place our backpacks more organized in the cabinets because its sometimes is hard to be looking for your things. Like if you forget something in your backpack but you cant find it because there are so many others piled on top of it. Another thing that I would like to change is to go through the forum a little bit faster so that we can have more time to do our work. One skill that I would really like to improve on is to become a better typer .I would like to improve on using all of my fingers when typing. Also to not look down at the keyboard.

  100. 1. There are so may things that I have enjoyed in this class. I enjoy working with our networks because we all contribute to the work and collaborate. The thing that I have enjoyed most in this class is the Global Literacy Project. What I liked best about this project is the preparation towards our Global Literacy Event. I also enjoyed this because we worked together to make our booth and we created posters.
    2. I don't think there's anything to change about this class. I feel that communication between networks should change because sometimes people don't ask for help or don't encourage others to do their work.
    3. One skill I hope to improve in this class is typing. I feel that I am not typing as I'm suppose to. To improve this skill as a class we should still have typing web, typing test and all that so we can improve our typing. I also think that students need dedication to type better and the appropriate way.

  101. 1)I enjoyed many things in this class, one of them was the field trip to LA. it was both educational and we had much time to have fun on our own. This is what i think all field trips should be like.Half of the time we were at the library learning about credible sources and the other half, we spent on our own having fun.
    2)I don't think there's anything that should be changed about this class.In my opinion this class runs smoothly compared to other classes and most of us get our work done.The only thing i would want for all of us is for at least 1 final field trip before the end of this school year. That way we will have fun while Ms.Espinoza is still here.

    1. I agree with Karla because in her first answer, I do agree that field trips should be half and half. Educational and fun, it's a great way for students to learn during field trips. In Karla's second answer I feel it is a great idea to have one more field trip, and the class is much better compared to other classes, since we actually get our work done on time.
      Typing is a major concept so I feel it is a great goal she is trying to accomplish.

  103. 1) I have enjoyed the Visa Digital Literacy website. I am glad that I won't have to remember everything the teacher said, but have it written down for me. It was very useful and helpful so that we won't forget things. Another thing I liked was that we weren't working alone, but with people who soon became friends. These people were useful for helping each other.
    2) What I would like to add or change here is leaving the backpacks in the closet when we walk in. It really disturbs me because if I need to get something, I need to get up and get whatever I need while in other classes I don't.

  107. 1) One thing I have enjoyed about this class is the Laboratory of Democracy because we Experimented new things, Shared Information, we did self reflection, and finally we reflected on things we did I think all off those things helped me understand more things. Also, thanks to the Laboratory of Democracy I understand how those things we did can help me write my homeroom essays.

It bothers me because when you forget something or you need to get something out of it that was added to the material list it is very crowded. Also, I would change the time we leave because sometimes we leave late because we forgot to watch a video and then we are late to our next class.
