I just wanted to take a moment and say thank you for a great semester. A semester which was full of surprises. But you still took the time for your students and created a unique course. Not juts a repeat from years before and I learned a lot from your class. So thank you!

I hope you and your family have an happy and healthy summer.

Hey #edu106 Here are the notes from today's Design Studio about adding an h-card to your @glitch website. Remember it is like a "business card" both people and websites can read

Hey #edu106 Here are the notes from today's Design Studio about adding an h-card to your @glitch website. Remember it is like a "business card" both people and websites can read

In Design Studio, our one hour drop in to hack on anything you want, Lilly had a question about adding an h-card to her website.

So we used the metaphor of a business card. Anything contained in the div with the metadata h-card assigned to to it's class attribute is a part of Lily's h-card. Not only can people read it on her website and source code, but websites can use the metadata to learn about Lily.

In HTML every element (commonly referred to as tags) can carry the class attribute. We use this to assign CSS selectors and metadata. Calling the class attribute CSS is wrong (Learn More).

In the h-card example we use the class attribute to identify Lily's "business card" on her website.

Lily decided she wanted her name so she made a pargraph contained in the div. In that paragtaph she added a span with p-name. She added u-url to the anchor element to say this website is "me." In the Image element (img) Lily has both "avatar" and "u-photo."

Avatar is a CSS selector. It has rules in her stylesheet saying, "Make this image X size and make it round."

She also has metadata in the class attribute of the img element. This u-photo tells other websites and people, "This is a picture of Lily."

Remember life is often a hunt trying to find the missing divisions that divide us. If you search for patterns in life you can often close issues and problems.

Gunning Chapter 13

Write

What are the goals and objectives for your language arts classroom. Post yours and then comment on the goals of your peers.

Need somewhere to start try:

  • What do you imagine your teaching practices to be?
  • How will your teaching practices change the world?
  • How can we make this journey together?

 (Hoffman 2019)

Participate

Let's work on those portfolios. Get your lesson plans done and add your assessments....really begin with how you want to measure growth. In the space or the reader?? Why do we will always say The student will be able to...Maybe it should be the space of learning will encourage....

Objectives and Assessment

As I said all semester. Maybe our learning spaces and not our students should be the variable of interest. That being said you will need to submit to EdTPA, it is a lesson plan genre designed to meet institutional, not learner,  needs.So this activity helps to scaffold that understanding.

Rubrics

So use my feedback and keep a tight association between your measures of growth and your stated objectives. Make your you derive those objectives from grade level expectations.I also, and you know ,I refuse to rubricize everything, ask you to submit a rubric for each lesson plan. This is to make sure I can tell you know assessment techniques and how to design criterion and/or scales.

Differentiation

Another common pattern I am noticing as I work on video feedback is differentiation. You are well skilled at modifying instruction based on student differences. In this class I want you to focus on just CONTENT differentiation. Not because you would do this in the real world...you wouldn't but I need to ensure your own knowledge growth around expectations of teaching literature.

In reply to Laura

It is ugly and superficial, but I add an RSS feed and encourage people to bring their own website. So I wanted my instructional design to be parallel. The content though gets sperated from external and internal blogs

I want webmentions back, more fun, more interactivity

We spent time learning a bit about flexbox, navigation and img layouat using Floats (CSS Grid will come later. We then added an h-card to our websites and ran sites through the indiewebify.me validator.

In the first photo you see Kathy and Milana happily hacking away.

In the second photo you see Kathy and Milana screens as they write HTML.

In the third photo Eric is sending an RSVP to our event.

In the fourth photo you see Justine layering images on her phone to add to the website.

We had a wonderful kickoff meet up as seven people, shown in the first image, joined me to hack away on their personal sites.

We spent much of the time talking about color and how to style elements with CSS. Everyone had fun choosing colors that matched their style. In the second pictureyou see Eric working on his site. In the third picture Tess tries our some hex colors. You can see a close up of her writing down hex values on her notebook in the fourth picture.

In the fourth image Qunae posts a timeline she made about  projects in Queens

ImageNet contains a number of problematic, offensive and bizarre categories - all drawn from WordNet. Some use misogynistic or racist terminology. Hence, the results ImageNet Roulette returns will also draw upon those categories. That is by design: we want to shed light on what happens when technical systems are trained on problematic training data. AI classifications of people are rarely made visible to the people being classified. ImageNet Roulette provides a glimpse into that process – and to show the ways things can go wrong.

so basically its not AI it just randomly assigns you an offensive word...I maybe grey but I am not bold...Could have labled me a SHARP... that be okayish...I could go find my ten hole steel caps docs somewhere in my closet.
