Your grades in this course will depend to varying degrees upon several aspects of your work. The specific breakdown is as follows:
Iím happy to explain my grading practices and policies to anyone who is concerned about their standing in the class.
Students who actively participate in class work tend to earn better grades on both coursework and exams. They read or listen to the important announcements, experience the material as it is presented, and pick up the various hints and pointers I provide along the way during online discussion. Regular participation in class work is the best way to help yourself succeed in the course.
I am happy to assist students throughout the semester, but I cannot learn the material for you. You must first take the initiative and do what you can to help yourself. If you have not been attending class work, discussions regularly, or tutorials and come to email me seeking help, do not be surprised if my first suggestion that you attend discussions with your fellow students or complete work in class.
In this course you will be expected to do your own work. All work which you submit and/or display as your own original work must in fact be your own original work. If any portion of the work which you do for this course is an exact same or derivation of the original work of another, it is your responsibility to obtain the creatorís permission to utilize his or her work and indicate the extent of the creatorís contribution to your work.
You cannot use material that will infringe copyright laws A grade of an F will be submitted if rules are not followed
You are expected to act as a good citizen when on the network and when you are in any form of discussion with your fellow classmates. Please use your common sense along with good taste when you communicate with your classmates. There could be penalties if you fail to abide by these rules. No abiding by these rules can range from a zero scores on your assignments to failure of the course.
Please also note, as a class area you are expected to have a discussion with other classmates on line. Please remember that what you say in public communication, the internet is what you would say face to face. All students who post should be aware that staff does monitor all post. (Principals, Vice Principals, Security) All post should only be the person logged into the WEB page. You cannot fake who you are when you post.
Links you want to use or experiment with:
Embed means you use information or media from one site and you plant it (embed it) in another site. You can show a video hosted on YouTube on your wiki or blog, without the user having to click over to You Tube. Watch the tutorial to learn how to embed media for a variety of tools (http://webtools4teaching.wikispaces.com/Embed)
Other technical information you may want to investigate
∑ * Google Maps -- especially great for embedding in wikis
∑ Google Reader -- reads blogs or anything with an RSS feed
∑ * Google Calendar -- good for personal organization, is publishable, and can be embedded in other sites
∑ Gmail-- it's probably more powerful than the email program you are using
∑ iGoogle -- a basic web start page. It's a nice way to see lots of web tools in one place. I use a to-do list on this to keep me on track.
∑ * Google Docs -- online word processing, particularly powerful in that multiple users can edit a document simultaneously
