What is Scratch . . .

Scratch is a programming language and an online community where children can program and share stories, games and animation they have made. As they create with scratch, they learn to think creatively, work collaboratively and reason systematically.

What I learned . . .

I learned how to make a game, like to animate, set randomization, to set scores, set a timer, controllers, all the above that makes a game.

Challenges . . .

There were a lot things I wanted to do for this game in different ways. I had used a similar programs like Scratch before, however it was hard to understand how to program. One of the things I wanted to program in the game, was after the ball touches the gift or a certain object, it would allow for the ball to touch any obstacle and it would disappear, allow a score to be on the demo, or add more levels, so they would be some improving in the game.

Overall my main challenge was understanding how to use Scratch, like all of the programming blocks and what to use them for and I had to consult the Scratch Wiki to learn how to make certain programs, like how to make my sprite jump and so on.

 

 

 

 

 

 

Biome Project Sway

For our group project, I think we did pretty well. During class time, we didn’t get much work done on the sway, because of planning and assigning roles, however already knew what to do and we finished our sway with info, media, references and what was addressed throughout. Working in groups are more engaging and fun because everyone has different ideas and opinions on how should everything be carried out, were able to help each other and more work is done.

My Digital Footprint

 

Incoming footprints

A digital footprint is Information of a person that keeps track of what he/she is doing online, and if not kept in check, it could affect your chances of getting a career. For instance, if in the past you gossiped about other people and post it, later when applying/having a job interview, they’re going to see all the posts that you did online. Another example of a digital footprint, if you decided to start an account on Instagram, on setup, typing your username and maybe your full name, ahand-shake-with-phone-icon-92648nd  then everyone knows who you are, you start doing posts, sharing with friends and following other people, whatever you did, it’s recorded under your name online. What ever you say out there, it usually can’t delete it, you could remove it from your account and people would stop seeing it, but it can be dug back up. In other words, it’s like a trail of where you went, you can try and cover your tracks, but the trail is still there.

13584593-safety-first-symbol-stock-vector-signHere are some ways to keep your digital footprint safe and appropriate. 1) before you post. Think, is this safe? is it harmful? can people get offended? 2) Try not to post personal information like home address, full name, passwords, credit cards, licensed plate, things imagesthat can find your name. 3) You don’t need to post everything you do everyday, the least amount of posts, the better.

If I managed to find information, like something about class or something weuntitled would be doing the next day that would be okay to share with untitled1other students, I would spread the word by talking to them personally, or if I could, I would post on our class site or somewhere that only other classmates would see.
