We discussed this in class.  From my reading I have found that the Internet is a WAN.

Take a look at this Dictionary.  http://www.computerlabkids.com/dictionary.htm

If you have time, look around on this the same site as above.  It has some great things.  http://www.computerlabkids.com/

TTCC Group – Artifact 2: Equity Issues & Technology Discussion
Sep 24th, 2009 by flanpa

Standard 5.2 must be discussed as an article in your newsletter. To work on this collaboratively, post your comments about the standard and what you have found through your research here.

5.2 Identify and address equity issues related to the use of technology, including, but not limited to, gender, ethnicity, language, disabilities, and student access to technology

There are the 2 ways that I have found discussed that can address equity.  One is putting applications on flash drives.  See this article:  http://www.techlearning.com/article/4340

The other way is using what is being called “cloud computing.”   Doug has been looking into this.  It would place all software that a student needs on any machine, any place that the student logs on.  It is web based.  Here is one company providing this service.  http://www.stone-ware.com/cloud/solutions/

We still would need to address access.

TTCC Artifact 1-Caption
Sep 24th, 2009 by flanpa

This is the proof that you have covered all the standards for this section. Open the Caption 1 Template and place X marks in the correct column. You should have at least one X for each standard. At the bottom, in standard 1.1, they are asking about how you can access all of your files from any machine or even your desktop. I talked about the s drive for students and the t drive to teachers. I also said that the u drive is my documents. Most of you used the formula or function of SUM to add numbers. The last section 3.15 is your opinion of what each section you did. I told the truth about how I did not find the spread sheet section useful because I would use Activotes. Once done, upload the file! YEA!!!! Artifact 1 is done!

TTCC – Artifact 1: Lesson Plan
Sep 24th, 2009 by flanpa

This is an easy one. Start with the Lesson Plan template in your folder. Select a lesson plan that either you have taught or you plan on teaching. It would be great if it included your spreadsheet you created. It helps you show that you are covering the standards that need to be covered for this artifact. The curriculum TEKS are just your subject TEKS from Forethought. The Technology TEKS/SBEC Teacher Technology Standards section is asking for 2 things. First, they want to know what Technology TEKS your students will be learning. You can find the technology TEKS at this SBEC website: http://ritter.tea.state.tx.us/rules/tac/chapter126/index.html. Next they want to know what SBEC Standards you will be using in this lesson. Use the list of standards overview under Abstract 1 found on the page where you upload your information or go here: https://mis.texasttcc.net/A1OverviewStds.html. From there the lesson plan follows a normal lesson that should be easy to fill in. When you are done, upload the file. You don’t even have to save it as a PDF. They have updated to recognizing a word file.

TTCC Artifact 1 – Spreadsheets
Sep 16th, 2009 by flanpa

Keep it simple! Go to this site to get some ideas. http://techteachers.com/spreadsheets.htm

I just took the Froot Loops example and changed it to fit my needs. Once you find a chart that you think you can use, save it to you TTCC Abstract 1 folder. Your spreadsheet must have one formula, text, and labels. This is not something I can really write and tell you how to do. Just set up a time with me if you need help and we will work on this together. Have in mind what spreadsheet you would use and what you want the chart data to look like. It is really a move backwards for us because we use votes and the chart from them for our data! So, just have to follow their rules and upload the info! Tell us what data the spreadsheet and chart represented.
