Coding by Kristin Perkinson

Codeacademy is a website that gives lessons on coding. Codes are used to run computers. I learned shortcuts to certain things by using codes like how to open up a new box, getting today’s date, and seeing how many characters are in my email address.

Today we learned a very cool thing thanks to Codeacademy. Today we learned how to code and insert an HTML. It was very interesting to learn the basics of creating an internet website

Learning How To Code- Ryan

Today in class, we used a very intuitive webiste, codeacademy, to help us learn about what goes on behind the scenes as computers code for webpages, images, and more. Although somewhat confusing at times, it was interesting seeing how computers really work and i hope to do it again.

How to Code

Today in class we went on this really cool website! It’s called “CodeAcademy.” It is an interactive HTML input system that teaches you how to code step-by-step. The best part is, it’s free! The lesson are comprehensible and really teach me a lot about coding. 

Making Money on Twitter! By Andrew

Hampton, along with his business partner Ryan Detert, runs California-based Influencial media group, a company that specialises in providing clients with various social media strategies for one social network: Twitter. While the company counts over 30 million followers from the accounts that it owns and manages, Hampton personally oversees 24 Twitter accounts that have over 11.5 million followers in total. So basically, big companies pay this man to control their twitter accounts. This is a job that maybe a twitter frenzied teen-ager could simply do!

Video Conferencing by Kristin

Today, our Business Information Technology class video conferenced Mrs. Roe, a woman from a different school in the district. We talked about video conferencing. I learned:

Video conferencing is the transmission of sychronized video and audio between two or more physically seperate locations.

Industries that use video conferencing are education, government, financial, health care, consumer services, and the enertaiment industry.

Listening to Mrs. Roe through a live video chat was very cool! I have had experiences with video chats already such as facetime but i never knew we could have a video conference with an entire class. I learned many knew things about Telacommunication such as our school bandwidth is 100 megabytes. I also learned that we are not allowed to stream music in school because that would use up our data and make our system very slow. Many big companies use video conferencing such as google. Even our government uses it for presidential meetings! In order to hold a video conference you must have a camera, a type of computer, an internet service and an IP adress of the other person. You can even hold a video conference with someone through an ipad!   Video conferencing is leading to a future of a very high tech era!

Video Conference w/ Mrs. Roe By Ryan

The video conference I attended today with my classmates was educational yet enjoyable. I learned a ton about how video conferencing works, including what the bandwidth of a network is, how big Cape District’s network is compared to to others, and more. Although several miles away, I got the experience of talking to Mrs. Roe as if we were in the same room. All in all, this was an innovative experience that hopefully becomes more than a one time thing, rather, a daily to weekly event that can help students in the classroom.
