    INSTRUCTOR NOTES

     

    This course will use a combination of lectures provided by the instructor and IT business partners, demonstrations, and hands-on activities with various operating system software and PC hardware components.  Hands-on activities will involve both individual and team activities. Students will be expected to research as well as other materials provided as handouts or from the internet, participate in class discussions, lab assignments, complete homework assignments, and study for quizzes and tests. Additional materials to study for the Microsoft Office exam will be provided. Students need to plan adequate study time to be successful on the Microsoft Office and MTA exams. Students also will be provided opportunities to troubleshoot and refurbish PC’s.   Students will be evaluated on quizzes, tests, homework completion, and demonstrating various basic skills required by a computer professional.

     

     Students are highly encouraged to study and sit for the Microsoft Office exams.  The exams will be taken at the MTI Test Center, on our campus. Cost of exam is included in the course.

     

    Classroom information and announcements will be found at the class website, https://www.marionschools.net/Page/70198. I will be contacting parents not only with points of concern, but at moments of achievement. I will make this effort via phone contact, as well email. For this reason, it is very important that the school, have the most up to date contact information available.

     

    Students and parents are welcome to contact me with any questions regarding assignments, assessments, or expectations. I can be reached at (352) 671-4765 extension 50031 or Donald.ray@marion.k12.fl.us.

     

    Class Schedule:  We meet Monday-Friday Morning: 7:35-9:25 Afternoon: 1:15-3:00 in room 11-002.

    Academy classes are 2 (two) fifty-minute periods per day. A semester of class is 9 weeks long. The days go by very quickly, therefore, attendance and completion of work on-time is critical for success.

     

    Students that require individual assistance or further help with class may contact me via email, phone, or schedule an appointment during my planning period from 11:35 to 12:40 Monday through Friday. Throughout the course I will be assigning websites for follow up work. These sites will be available to you for further assistance, and to help with any information you need regarding the class work.

     

    In our class, we use a system called GMETRIX to practice, and prepare for industry certifications. This is a free download, and is available to be worked on from home, or anywhere an internet connection is available.

    ASSESSMENT PLAN/GRADE EVALUATION

     Each assignment, lab activity, homework, notebook, workplace skills, professional ethics, class participation and attendance, and quizzes will be assigned a point total. Grades will be based on the percentage weight of each category. Total points for the course will be based on number of assignments, activities, quizzes, etc that are provided throughout the semester.

     It is the responsibility of the student to get their assignments from the Instructor if absent. If a test was missed due to an absence, the student should make arrangements with the Instructor to make up the test outside of regular class time.  Instructor will provide a due date for the missed work. Students will receive full credit for work that is appropriately completed and submitted within one (1) day for each day ofabsence.

     Tardy Policy: Class begins on time. If late for class, you will be marked tardy (lose points) if you arrive within the first 10 minutes. Per school policy, after that time, you must go to attendance to obtain a “tardy pass”. After the third tardy, a phone contact will be made with the parent, and a fourth will result in the student receiving a referral.  Subsequent tardiness will require a parent conference.

     


    CLASSROOM RULES OF CONDUCT

     

    My general philosophy regarding conduct is all about RESPECT. I believe that if we show each other respect, show the classroom equipment RESPECT, and give the proper RESPECT to the information we are learning, then we can all have a very productive year. With that in mind, here are some guidelines to keep in mind for class.

    • Think Safety; Work Safely
    • Be Respectful
    • Be Prompt and Prepared for Class
    • Be an Active Participant
    • Be Productive
    • Be a Problem Solver

      

    SUPPLIES

    •  3-ring binder notebook or 3 section notebook
    • Pencil or pen, paper
    • USB drive

  • Create a PowerPoint wherein you will take each letter as if you are writing the ABC's of Information Technology
    Each letter will require three different terms...

    A-gets three terms...
    B-gets three terms...
    C-gets three terms...etc...

    Here is the catch...I do not want copy and paste definitions...You are older students with a certain amount of knowledge...

    Take that knowledge and put it to use. I want the definitions written as if you are writing them for an elementary level child. If you have a little brother or sister, test it on them. If it is too confusing, write it again...

    One more catch...you can't use any trademarks...so that means, Apple is not allowed for the letter A....

    Sorry guys...gotta be creative...

    Use all the internet you can...Google and use your imagination...

    1. So, there must have been a misunderstanding…that is my bad….The assignment for this week should be pointed toward an elementary age child. That means the definitions should be low key, and easy to understand, and having three definitions for each letter is great, but children learn best from pictures…So please make sure at least one picture accompanies each letter….Cool? If you have submitted already, please take a few minutes and resubmit…You have till the end of the week…

    2. Daily Discussion: So, you take a day, and spend it reading an amazing mind bending book, instead of working…Do you consider that a waste of your day? (Answer on Google Stream)

    1. So, there must have been a misunderstanding…that is my bad….The assignment for this week should be pointed toward an elementary age child. That means the definitions should be low key, and easy to understand, and having three definitions for each letter is great, but children learn best from pictures…So please make sure at least one picture accompanies each letter….Cool? If you have submitted already, please take a few minutes and resubmit…You have till the end of the week…

    2. Daily Discussion: If you could have any technology built into your body (cyborg, android style) what would be the first technology you have installed and why? (Answer in the Google Stream)

    3. New Assignment this week…We are going to begin to piece together a children’s book…This exercise is meant to be FUN, and, at the same time, reflect on what you have learned through out the school year…Please look at the Google Classrooms assignment for the details…(This is the beginning of your final exam)

    4. Assignment for last week…Watch the following two YouTube Videos in this order
    i. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=UUlaseGrkLc&list=PLkAVUURATZSe51t6LzZxPd0H8-bpB088N
    ii. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=M1CHPnZfFmU
    b. Next…summarize the Growth Mindset Video (the second one) and explain whether you believe you have a growth mindset, or a fixed mindset in your summary. As part of your summary, explain which you prefer and why.
    c. Next email this to me….donald.ray@marion.k12.fl.us


    5. Go back through the Daily Questions…A lot of you are not doing much, and you will be the first people to fuss when your grade is low.... Please don’t be one of these people

    Good morning everyone…

    Announcements/Classwork for today

    Believe it or not, it has been two weeks since grades were pulled for progress reports. I will be pulling grades for the last two weeks and begin posting in Skyward after Wednesday...If you think you are missing something...Do it, and email me...Don't email me, and ask "Mr. Ray did I turn this in?" My suggestion is if you are not sure…turn it in again...It will not hurt.

    If you are missing any daily questions...go back, and do them...

    I am only going back to 4-22; anything before that is graded, accounted for and done. If you have a special circumstance, please email me directly, and we can discuss.

     

    1. Daily Discussion: If you could go back in time and change ONE thing, what would it be and why?

    Good morning everyone…
    Announcements/Classwork for today
    Makeup Monday….

    1. Daily Discussion: Today’s DAILY Discussion is….Why do my grades look like they do? (I will explain)

    As of Sunday afternoon, I have gone through the Google Classroom, all my emails, and searched long and hard for all the assignments that have been turned in….

    You currently have 6 assignments in Skyward. Below, I will list how they are each graded….

    Daily Question .... you have three of these grades…one per week. They are worth 5 pts because there are 5 days in a week. Therefore, for participating, you are given a point per day. If you have a 2 for one of these grades, that means you have participated 2 or fewer days throughout the week. (My recommendation is that you go back to the beginning of the stream and fill in some of these daily questions. Once you do that, please let me know, and I will go back through, verify, and update your grade. (Super simple)

    PowerPoint Quiz … almost a month old…almost everyone has finished this quiz…so I don’t think it is that big of a problem…if you have a 50, that means you did not do it…Please go back and do the quiz. (Still fairly simple)

    Name in Technology … 2 weeks old… there are a lot of people that did not do this…. I don’t know why…this was a fun little assignment, and really pretty easy… If you got a 50 on this, that means you did not turn it in…Please do so via email…

    Twitter Style Summary … this assignment is almost 3 weeks old… There are 3 articles…read them, and summarize them in a line or two…Twitter style, really short... It was worth ten points, so if you got a 5 in Skyward, that means I did not receive it…Please do this, send it to my email…

    Listen guys, I really hate giving out this bad news, but no effort on your part means I must give out a ton of bad news…

    So, I am asking that you please go back through the Daily Question Stream, and answer the questions…Email ME…let me know…

    Go back and do the assignments you are missing…Email ME…let me know…

    Everyone that takes this class has the capability to get an A…

    There is no reason why I do not have 40 A’s sitting in my Skyward…

    New assignment tomorrow…

Daily Discussion: In our new “normal” society has taken to using teleconferencing for things that would normally be in person….School, Medicine, etc…When it comes to health care there is a fairly new product taking over a doctor’s visit…the teledoc…would you rather in today’s society talk to a doctor over teleconference, video, or would you rather a good old fashioned doctor visit? Why?

    This is not to be answered in Google Classroom….

     

    1. Last Monday Morning there was an assignment given in relation to breaking you’re your name into letters, and then using these letters to come up with three technology related items, and defining them. Some people did the assignment and turn it in proper. If you look at your Skyward and do not see a grade, it is because either I can not find your turned in paper, or you only did a part of the assignment. If you are happy with the partial assignment you turned in, please let me know in an email, and I will give you the appropriate grade. Otherwise, this is your shot to turn this in. You can do this through Google Classroom, or by emailing me….this is all posted on my website, as well as in the Google classroom…Turn this in Google Classroom or Email it to me ray@marion.k12.fl.us

    1. Daily Discussion: Final Fantasy VII remake is a new game that is actually a remake of a fairly old video game from the 90’s. What is your take on this remake? Is it smart to call it a remake? Why not just put it out as a new sequel? (Answer in the Google Classroom Stream)

     

    1. NEW ASSIGNMENT…Watch the Youtube video entitled “An Overview of Windows 10-CompTIA A+ 220-1002-1.2” https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kdqnXBUGnOo&list=PLG49S3nxzAnmwkCAdWUgCFvVK4IxMBTmb&index=4 

     

    This video is about 6 minutes long….I want you each to take the information and write a 3 question quiz based on the points of fact in this video…(make sure you give me the answer...LOL)...I would like this emailed to me Donald.ray@marion.k12.fl.us

    1. Last Monday Morning there was an assignment given in relation to breaking you’re your name into letters, and then using these letters to come up with three technology related items, and defining them. Some people did the assignment and turn it in proper. If you look at your Skyward and do not see a grade, it is because either I can not find your turned in paper, or you only did a part of the assignment. If you are happy with the partial assignment you turned in, please let me know in an email, and I will give you the appropriate grade. Otherwise, this is your shot to turn this in. You can do this through Google Classroom, or by emailing me….this is all posted on my website, as well as in the Google classroom…Turn this in Google Classroom or Email it to me ray@marion.k12.fl.us
