Guest Teacher, Thursday, October 27th

illiminateAll Students,

On Thursday, October 27th, I will be attending Illuminate Training at the PYLUS District Office all day.  While I’m going, here’s what I would like you to do.  Please remember to say hello to our Guest Teacher, and welcome them to our classroom.

Period 01, Mobile App Development:
Please work on the Finger Paint App Part 02.  Please remember, you will NOT have access to the Blu HD phones during class on that day.  Plan to work on other aspects of your app.  After a discussion with Min Kim, I made a number of modifications to the assignment today that I will discuss on Friday.  Can you spot these changes to the directions?  I have installed ArcWelder on your computers, and it “should” probably work.  See this handout on how to use it: ArcWelder Quick Start PDF.

Period 04, Animation Projects:  
Please Continue working on Lesson 05, Elements Of Art and Principles Of Design.  It is due on Friday, October 28th!  If you are done early, work on something for another class.  I do not expect anybody to be playing games, etc. on the computer while I’m gone.

Period 05 and Period 06, AP Comp Sci:
Continue working on Lesson 08, the CheckMail class and tester.  Please remember to check all 7 possibilities mentioned at the end of the directions. On Friday, we will discuss these options in class when I return.

See you on Friday,
Mr. Eliot
