Wednesday Work Day: Swamped
What a day! Today was definitely work day here at my job. Most of the day was spent cleaning house and making sure that I don't forget about anything that I need to do before my family leaves for a week. We will have no access to phones, or internet, so if my work needs me I will be unreachable...yikes! However, if nothing catastrophic happens (like the internet going down at work or something) then we should be good.
As far as tips or hints: never eat soggy waffles. Unless they are soggy from syrup, and then they are delicious. Oh, and if something stops working on your computer or device, try rebooting.
Wednesday Work Day: Excel
I have been teaching Computer Tech for a couple of years, love Microsoft Excel, and just started the spreadsheet unit this year. This application is such a powerful tool, and I keep looking for ways to improve my lessons so my students will learn to love Excel as much as I do. There are so many features that make it amazing, but it seems like it is the art that makes it appealing to some.
I recently published the Microsoft Excel module in our LMS and the following picture was waiting for them:
So, before I even posted the assignment they started creating their own. Several of them have created a few already and the assignment (called Pixel Art) isn't due until this Friday. I'm excited to look through what they create and I will post some pictures soon.
