Hay Park Way Thinglink 2016

Hello Bloggers, 

Today we have been learning how to create a positive digital footprint using Thinglink. 

Sometimes it is a fun way to share music ad images but we thought it would be better for our learning to be shared with. Here is my Thinglink about the Hay Park Way. The Hay Park Way is to be respectful, resilient and responsible.

Comic Strips- Mice for Sale

Hello bloggers,

Today I have just finished my comic strip, but what is a comic strip?
Well, a comic strip is basically a google drawing that has boxes and you first read any short book. A junior journal for example (I read the text called . After that you have to simply just take precise screenshots of the book's pictures resembling the start, middle, and end. Once you are done this, the only step that is needed is the writing. You should just have a few speech bubbles left and you have to write words you think or know what the person is thinking or saying.

This was created using something called google drawing. This may be familiar to some people, I basically just had to use text boxes and my editing skills to present this to you. The most challenging part of me making this comic strip was to make sure everything, including the pictures were easy to read and were easy to see. For example, if the picture was half covered in light, it would be hard to see the half that has light because the picture is white, not it's original color. I also had to make sure the text was big and bold for you too see and read.

I enjoyed writing the text for the speech boxes because I could come up with anything to say that is related t the text.

My next step for my comic strip is to make sure that the the comic strip has more information and it is more descriptive. One more step is I have to make sure that I am more picky for the words I use, so I have to use more interesting and exciting words.

I hope you enjoy my blog post about my comic strip.
Gargee :)

Cybersmart Digital Game

Namaste amazing bloggers,

It has been quite a bit of time since I did my last blog post, I have tons to share with you! I have been learning how to be a cyber smart learner. What does that mean? Well, being cyber smart is when you are being safe and kind online, on the internet. No matter if you are at school, home, work etc. There is a game called the Cyber smart game, it is similar to snakes and ladders. You have to have a buddy, one of you roll a dice and whatever number it lands on that is how many steps you take. Whatever you land on, click on it and it will bring you to a task. First you have to SMRF your task, then begin filling it in.

It was really easy at the start, but then it started to get a little harder. Gradually it was getting me to think more, which is good because I got better ideas.

Here is a screenshot of my first task, the dice landed on a 1.
