This week in Technology we're making our scripts for our movies. The word processing program that we're using is Google Docs. Google Docs is a sight that you use to type, you can share what you're typing with friends or with a teacher. You're teacher and friends are allowed to comment on what you're writing. Google Docs is basically like Microsoft Word with more and less features in a different way. You can share your script with others and contribute to it at the same time. It is great for working on our scripts outside of class when we are not together.

Today in class we are making a movie on digital citizenship. We each picked a number and divided into groups of three based on the number that we drew. The class is on the computers with their groups deciding how they want their movie to be using google docs to write their scripts. Looking around the room I see very good teamwork and cooperation. The class can't wait to continue this tomorrow!:)

Every time you post a picture you leave even more information about yourself online. We are learning about our own individual digital footprints. We are going to be making movies about digital citizenship using mobile devices and iMovie. We watched videos today on Digital Citizenship to see how we could make the most effective films. We discussed what we liked and didn't like about each film and why. This will help us in making the best "Protech the Ones We Love" movies.

Last week, we built Lego alligators. Today, we are plugging the motor and sensor into the USB port on the computer to make it crunch and move the jaw up and down as though it is chomping. We logged on to our computer and went to the Lego WeDo software. The software gave us instructions that made us be able to control the alligator robot. Then, we made it sense food so that the jaw would open and close as the food approached. It was very cool. I hope we get to do this again!
