Transcript of Computer Literacy Expectations - Grade 8

All due dates are posted online on the Grade 8 Calendar, and you are expected to meet them. Learning target:
I can use exploration and my background knowledge to independently use technology. The goal of this class is for all students to be successful, independent learners on the computer.
Technology is always changing and so we need to be able to change with it.

It is our hope that students will put forth their best effort in every assignment and learn not just specific software but be able to apply their knowledge to any technology they encounter. Teaching Philosophy Computer skills can be developed through practice. Focus on the learning, not on the grade in the class.
Most of your questions don’t need an answer from me. Believe in yourself to find it. If you don’t give anything, don’t expect anything. Success is not coming to you; you must come to it. I don’t know more than you; I am just more experienced. Now is your turn to gain experience. Everything you need for this class is in the Computer Literacy Notebook. It contains links to instructions and tutorials for every project.

There is very little instruction time in class. You are responsible working through the notebook.

If you miss a day of class you are still responsible for meeting the due dates, so make sure you plan accordingly. Late work and corrected assignments are accepted.

You are required to meet with the teacher to get the assignment scored.

This will help us understand where you fell short in the expectations of the assignment or meeting the deadline. In order to be successful we need to understand our failures. Accessing files outside of class
Flash Drive
Saving to a flash drive allows you to transport work to and from home. You can purchase them at Wal-Mart, Target, or any electronic store. The recommended brand is Attache PNY. DO NOT use Sandisk. This will be necessary for media project that are stored as a folder, not just a single file. You have a private storage area in MBC where you can upload a document. Then at home with on Internet connection you can access MBC and download your document to work on it. Study Lab Grade 8 In this class you will be required:
move outside your comfort zone You will be:
sometimes even upset
(as technology often causes us to be). Stick with it and you will also feel:
will learn more about technology than
you ever thought possible in one quarter Don't wait for smart to happen! Give yourself some think time. Homework Philosophy Grading Philosophy This is not as easy as it sounds. You MUST meet deadlines.

You MUST work outside of class to complete work on time. The amount of homework will be dependent on your ability to focus and use your work time in class.

You will determine what work needs to be done outside of class and when you will do it (based on your schedule). Homework is a continuation of what is done in class There is study lab in the LMC Monday through Thursday from 3:00 -4:00. There are plenty of available computers during this time.
