7.2 Write about your skills in a Group Discussion.
Start a new word processing document or Keep note. Write in complete sentences. Hyperlink the titles of software you mention so your groupmates can quickly go to there to learn more. Check spelling and grammar. After posting your finished writing (and perhaps illustrations/movies), reply to another student's thread.
- Click on the Chapter 7 Group Discussion~ Share your Skills from the Canvas Home screen.
- We all have varying degrees of experience using software to create and be productive. In a paragraph, write in the first-person style about your level of expertise with various computing applications.
- Tell us in the first-person style if you have experimented with writing code, building interactive components, or designing something (such as a 2-D or 3-D object).
- Share your favorite applications and talk about what you've created.
- Extra credit: Insert an image or movie of what you have created so we can applaud your efforts!
- Finish up by discussing whether you are ready for something more challenging. What kinds of more challenging computer tasks are you interested in trying?
7.3 Reply to a groupmate.
