Netiquette Project Evaluation

ICT Essentials 1
Question of the Day: What topic have you selected for your project? 

Daily Objectives: 
Define an information problem.Identify information needed in order to complete the task (to solve the information problem).Create an outline, a storyboard, a graphic organizer, and/or a concept map .Identify and define authentic problems and significant questions for investigation.Plan and manage activities to develop a solution or complete a project.

Word of the Day:  Key words - Good key words are the important words or short phrases that specifically describe your topic and closely related topics. They are not long sentences.
Question of the Day: Do you think modern technology reduces or increases stress? Why?

Daily Objectives: 
Identify the Vocabulary and and computer programming concepts.Program a sprite to move a specific distance.Program a sprite to move a specific direction.Arrange statement in logical order.Evaluate and enhance threads in Scratch.

Word of the Day:  Events - Not only can events be signaled by blocks, they can also be signaled by a user's actions. Clicking Scratch's green flag, for instance, effectively signals an event that is handled by:

In Scratch, not only do events enable threads to communicate, they also allow sprites to communicate with each other.

Out of statements, Boolean expressions, conditions, loops, variables, threads, and events can you construct interesting (and fun) programs. In fact, let's explore the inner workings of what, on first glance, appears to be a very complex program but, ultimately, is just an application of these building blocks.
Let's turn our attention to Oscartime
