Weekly Reflection of 9/12-9/16

This will be my second blog post to inform you all about what’s happening in the Cane Tech Squad Help Desk. Last week we did Treehouse, which is a site that can teach you many things you should know about computers, coding, etc. For our assignment, we had to learn about the digital literacy path. In the digital literacy path, we learned computer basics; data/memory, binary, software, etc. Another thing we learned was how the internet/web works along with simple coding in HTML and CSS. If you all want to know more, you should click the link above and join the team!

First App Review (Quizlet)

Quizlet’s an online learning tool that allows for students to join in a class. The teacher is able to put up vocabulary for the class so that the students may be able to study them online. Some of the many study abilities are: flashcards, learn, speller, test, and the games scatter and gravity (with leaderboards to inspire competition between students to see who’s better). These different categories of study habits allow for the students to find what works for them and have the best studies they can accomplish.Screenshot 2016-09-02 at 10.19.52 AM

         I myself have used Quizlet many times before and I adore using it. Although I only have one class on Quizlet, I use use it to study often; which is a big deal since I’ve never exactly studied that long before now, if ever. For teachers, Quizlet allows them to see who studied, how they studied, and how well they did with it. This allows for recording of the previous knowledge and/or progress.
