8th Grade: 

5/6/15 – Do Now – “Loop” A Function in a computer program when you repeat a certain code or a set of instructions a specified number of times.

What value is there in using a “loop” in your code?

I CAN. . . demonstrate (show; make plain) my understanding of basic tools in Flash Professional andsequence (put in order; put in a series) of code using ActionScript 3.0.

Finish Globaloria if you are not done.

If you are finished with Globaloria: Escape Everest

You must discover what has happened to the Earth after being asleep for 200 years. You must work together to balance environmental concerns with the demands of technological progress. You will wake up in a bunker beneath the summit of Mt. Everest. The ice caps have melted and  sea levels have risen.

You have multiple goals, some in conflict, set up a social and technological tension which must be navigated.

A balance must be negotiated. There are also several side goals and hidden chests to find. There are activities for many types of players and multiple ways to contribute…


7th Grade Below – Repeaters Work on Kodu:

5/6/15 – Do Now – “bandwidth” the amount of data that can be sent through a connection at one time.

How does the amount of bandwidth on the school’s wifi affect the speed of data being transferred?
