vAUXkktm (that's supposed to say basically) I think that i could teach them about the internet, and help them make their own webpages about anything they want, and theach them that the internet is really about being about to do antying. and not just the inetenet, but computers in general.
*another i dea i had was to help them look up something that they're interested in. like teach them how to use a seach enjine on something, but also yeah... that might be alittle harder, but maybe i can teach them a skill...
hrm that's something to think about. do i want to teach a concept or a skill? i think that the webpage thing is mroe a concept, the concept that they can do aything they want, whereas the seachign is just a skill. although basic internet knowledge is an incredibly usefull skill that they really should have. oh, nick just turned on his fan. that meant that i was keeping him up with m typung. yeah, probably. he cant sleep either.
I also want to do some other technology oriented skill, such as making shirts. I think that would be fun. although I dont see how well that would work short of me buying and making all the shirts iron on style. I dont hink I really have the capacity to do that, although it would be really fun... although, i do need to ivest a certain amount of time in this, so it is appropriate. yeah. I'm excited. hrm, what else is technology good for. well, I could take my digital camera to school, and do soemthing fun like that...
another idea could be a class story. like they all write a story together and everye illustrates their page, and yeah. but that's actually too hard for teh kids.
i think that the kids could have a webpage easily. I'll just do anglefire or something. or maybe even pay for a geocities page for them. I think that they could each write a story or soemthing. oh, but the best part of technology and the internet is the interactivity, so there would have to be surveys and stuff. hfm... i hacce an idea...
they could have a class Livejournal, and there would be someoe who would write down what the class did durig the day, and then at the end of the day someone would type it in. and the class;s livejournal could be put into their main page.. yeah, but using livejournal is kinda stupid. I guess the only think it would facilitate is the ease in inputting the log. of course, what would tha serve to do? i dont know. I think that this thingy needs more focus.
another part I need to think about is the time aspect. for example, would I go and help them during their comuter time every day? or would i develop a one shot curriculim I could do all at once at lunch. I kinda like the cumulitive Idea better. Although the thought of having to use thoes antiqyated computers makes me shutter. I bet we have better computers just sittig around upstairs. yeah. what do they have, Like performas ? oh wait!! they just got new 8100s i think. yeah. although they're using these tiny 12 inch monitors. i wonder if we could donate one of the monitors I just put in the closet to the school tax-writeoff stylE/f fuvki you typing in the dark!!
ywah, i think that's what we should do. and I really want to go and buy better headphones, or at least headphone extenders, cause they're way too short.
but back to the assignment at hanf... i dontknow. internet probably, but I need to make something interactive. yeah... uh I'll thik of somehting. I'm going to talk to the teacher on tuesday, and we can come up with some ideas then.
oh, and since I'm not goig to sleep, i'll weirte an e-mail to my mom telling her about the monitor idea. and I also need to wweite my dad about the plane ticket to japan. of course, I need to study japanese and do well, but I'm gonna get up at 9 and do that. so huzzah
