This week we are learning about HTML. It is very interesting to learn about. We have also learned about how information travels across the internet There are a lot of steps in the process. First, you have to put your domain name in the URL (Uniform Rerecord Locator) bar. Next, it goes to their server, and the server receives the message. Third, it allows you to go on the website and do whatever you want. That is the process behind how information travels device to device!

In technology, we are learning how to code on Khan Academy. We have also learned new vocabulary words such as algorithm, nesting conditional statements, and abstraction. Algorithm means a series of instructions in a specific order to complete a specific task. A conditional statement is the rules inside of a condition using if/else statements. Abstraction means to pull out specific information to make one solution work for multiple problems. Khan Academy is teaching us how to code in a challenging, but fun way!

In class, we are learning how to make lines of code by using Khan Academy. Our class is being taught how to make a face using variables, ellipses, and other codes. Variables are place holders for information. Our class has also learned what an algorithm is. An algorithm is a set of instructions that makes something happen or occur. We are being educated in an enjoyable, yet difficult way. Mrs. Mittleman's class is having fun using Khan Academy and learning all about coding!

We are doing Scratch Projects. We get to make a game. I learned a lot. It is really enjoyable, but still very hard. The difficult part was thinking of an idea that you can do and learning how to make things move, but when you do it, the ending product is really cool. We also had to use conditionals. Conditionals are if one thing occurs, then somethings needs to happen, and else something different. We get to play each others games. It is really awesome to see how other peoples turned out. Scratch is a blast.

As of today, we are still working on Bloxels. Bloxels is an app, that allows children to express their game, programming, and engineering skills with characters, game building, Bloxels, elements, and much more. I personally love making new characters and watching my friends play my games that I have made. Someday, my Bloxels skills might come to use, but until then, I will take it one block at a time.
