We need people to program a device or piece of technology so it can go do things and function properly. Without people like this, our favorite devices won’t work and we wouldn’t be where we are with today on technology. By learning how to code we can create new technology or even improve our old devices and put new software it in, basically like an update on computers, phones, etc. Coding literacy is the best because without these awesome ways to do things we would all be crying, whining, and begging for something great. We don’t want to go back to the old days where we have to click or do multiple things to complete one task; we want a program or code that you can take the least amount of time and it completes it.
You won’t learn about how to be a good writer, but how to become a great one. In this class I’ve transformed my writing from novice to expert and I am very proud to say that. Most importantly above all you will learn about yourself in ways that you never thought. That’s through the writings and projects we’ve done on others identity. The writings that shape our own identity were through blogs we’d have
Although not all the strategies were practical for everyone, it was helpful to examine them and think of how we can apply them to our own lives. My favorite technique was discussed in Chapter 9; it’s Ben Franklin’s principle of “Philosophical Self-Denial”. Basically it means that when you set out to do something you first reflect inward and examine why you are doing it, which helps you accomplish your goal, even if it’s something you don’t want to do. I think this technique is my favorite because while it is helpful for disconnecting from technology, it’s also relevant to almost every other aspect of life. Although this class was the first time I had heard of this term, I try to apply a similar principle to events in my life by seeing how it connects to and will affect my life goals.
Even though these reasons are valid, I do feel as though this website has room for improvement. One of the main characteristics of this site is they could list who is the editor of the website. When checking out the information, I was just assuming that the author is the one that checks the site, but that may not be true and others viewing the site may not think the same about that information. The only other problem I found with this site was I tried a link that was supposed to be a frog call and it seemed to take a while to load, but this was the only link that I had a problem with on this site. Other than these characteristics, I feel as though this is a high-quality
In general—even prior to my communications class—I consider myself a skilled communicator and a friend that is more than willing to listen to someone’s struggles; however, I did not recognize how much psychology was behind the way we communicate. Prior to registering for the class I knew I had areas to improve upon such as body language, lack of self-disclosure, and attribution, all of which I created plans to therefore enhance, but I had no doubt in my capabilities to be empathetic, skillful at solving conflict, and confident while speaking in front of others. Throughout the class I realized that more often than my words,
For example, I was able to continue on into high school math in middle school or in other words onto Geometry. Now since I’m going into highschool I’m going to be able to take Algebra 2. Math has always been my favorite subject and I’m glad middle school has given me opportunities to advance in
Maybe I could show them I had potential”. It was a risk I was willing to take. I started my common app as quickly as possible making sure that I would have enough time to complete it all. Especially, the essay I had to write. Writing wasn’t my strong suit; in fact I hated it.
Brian Brett: Informative Speech Review (Autism 1) After I finally looked at my video to prevent any emotions of “jacked up” or “jacked down”, I was able to form clear thoughts about my speech and what I could do to improve it. While my introduction and conclusion were stronger than the rest of my body, they all needed improvement because of not utilizing the cards as taught, among other factors which I will discuss very soon. However, this could be tentative, as I may have done better or worse as per the teacher’s guidelines. As with any class speech or thesis or however it’s presented, my introduction is always the strongest. I gave myself a score of “5”, (Gaining the attention of the audience), “4” (Good overview), “4”, (Credibility), “5”, (Central Idea) for the introduction because they are my strong suit, I am most calm or ready during this portion.
My Personal History My name is Amber Solomons. I was born on the 15th of January 1997. I am the eldest of two and I have lived with my parents for all my life. I attended Heathfield primary school where I did ballet, athletics and cross country as my extra-mural activities. I really enjoyed cross country very much and continued to do it in high school.
One example of how social comparisons have shaped me is when in the 6th grade, I started to realize that all my friends had Nike shoes and I had a generic brand. This eventually lead me to begging my parents for some new shoes and me finally getting some Nike shoes for the start of 7th grade year. This has had an effect on me since then, and to this day I still love Nike shoes. Another example of when I was affected by social comparisons was when one of my friends brought a laptop to school. This was when I first realized that I loved computers and that I needed to have one.
That boy was me back in 2010 and that email was from my mother, who has a background in engineering and computers. She wanted me to start exploring the world of computer science by using this online video tutorial. Taking my mother’s advice, I started learning how to code Python from this website. Initially, I was very exited to do this course. Everyday after school, I’d quickly finish my homework so I move on to this “fun” stuff.
UW-Eau Claire is an important school to me because of your great educational programs. Through my life I have switched the idea of what I wanted to do plenty of times. However, one idea always remained. I always wanted to be a teacher, and work with kids and be able to shape and work with the next generation of students. This past fall semester I have been taking a college course at UWGB through Bay Port.
It was September, and I was 4 years- old. The year was 2006. When I walked in the front doors of the huge brick building, I realized that it was my first day of school, and I was going to a place called Saint Mary’s I couldn’t really pronounce the word “Institute” when I was 4 years-old, but I would quickly learn how to learn and spell the word thanks to the amazing teachers I have now and have had in the past. They gave me the best education of my life. However, it all started here: in front of the door
My job would very year to year but I mostly helped with setting up events and making sure the participants got to the right event. Sometimes I would even get to participate in the event like the wheel chair relay race. I love working with this organization because I love watching the participates get excited about doing their events. Babysitting/Nanning — 2010-2016 The last six years I have gotten the opportunity to work for a family as their nanny. The child I took care of was born with Down-Syndrome and it was my job to help him with his homework and other daily obstacles he might have.
The gift of knowledge can only be rivaled by the other gifts I received that will forward my career. I received a dream spark account which gives access to useful software from Microsoft such as Visual Studio for C++, SQL Server, Windows 7, 8 and 8.1 Pro, among many others. I also got the valuable gift of Cisco IOS files. These files allow me to replicate all the projects I did during the internship and in Professor Walter 's Computer Networking Class. I wished there was more time to learn new things during the internship.
