Teach Project Done!

Posted by: | June 8, 2009 | No Comment |

I thought this was a very interesting project. When I was writing it I actually was taking the time to teach  my mother. She found it very helping to have words bold and underlined and photos to go with the words. My mother is a very visual learner so it was nice to be able to add those pictures to go with the words. My mother is now able on her own to send messages, add friends, search for friends, up load photos, and check her messages.

I think that finding valuable information on this subject was difficult because many things I found were from other peoples blogs. I thought it was a lot easier because I am able and know how to use MySpace and was able to teach my mother how to use it solo by just my words on the computer.

I want to continue to learn how to use and work computers. I still struggle but I definitely feel a lot more confident now then I did before this class. I thought I would catch on quicker and have no problem understanding half the things you wanted us to do. However, it was the other way around, I had a lot more difficult time then I thought. I have only been working with computer for past 4 years of my life and still have a lot to learn.

I have learned a lot not only about the Internet but about women in the society. My favorite was reading the articles and the discussions on blackboard, it really made me think about different situations and physically look online for more information. I began asking more questions and using the Internet as a source of information.

I think I meet the class objectives, I have tried my best in everything I have done in this class. I have taken a lot of information and gained from it. There are still a few steps where i get confused and seems that I will NEVER understand. I am type of student who works really hard and still receives average scores. I learned to deal with that in life and found out 3 weeks ago that because this class and I began to question if I have a learning disability. I went and got tested and yes, I found out that I do.

I thought it was amazing the reason I struggle so much in school, writing, math, is because I have language, reading, math, and memory disorders. Now I understand the way I am is not because I am stupid it is because I just have a bit more difficult time then all my friends due to these disabilities.

Teach Project

Posted by: | May 27, 2009 | 1 Comment |

Here are some ideas I came up with for teach projects:

  • How to use facebook/myspace
  • How to send an email
  • How to upload photos
  • How to view photos from an email
  • How to use a digital camera
  • How to hook up a printer
  • How to work a cell phone

What I decided to do for my teach project is:

To teach my mother how to use myspace. I thought if I were to teach her how to use myspace she can use it to keep in touch with friends and family. I also plan on teaching my project through my blog.

I have had some difficult challenges through out this journey of the financial analysis. I got very confused on section 8.2 when it asked to make a webpage, because I left corvallis and was not connected to the resident hall internet I was not able to get the proper connection. I beleive that is why it was not working.

Also, the embeded links, I not sure if I did that correcty. I really enjoyed this assignment besides those parts in 8.2 and 8.3. I tried but i am not sure if i did it correctly. I cant wait if one day i can go on this trip. I need to save a lot of money to make my dream vacation come to a reality.

I think I would go on the cheaper route of my dream trip, I would try to do the best to make the trip as cheap and fun as possible. I learned a lot and still frustrated that I was not able to figure out a those two steps.. not sure if I did them correctly.

Culture Project Finished!

I just have completed everything I am pretty sure! Now, I just need to added it on blackboard for it to get graded. I never thought I would spend so many hours on a computer until I have taken this class. I have learned a lot from Galina Mindlin, one day I would love to meet her, I sent her an email but never heard back, I am guessing she is a busy woman. I hope to save enough money to get my own type of music to help me with axiety, that would be great. I was thinking the price it takes to get the tests and music made is 550 dollars which is a lot, but if you add up medication and all that is would probably save you in the long run.

If anyone ends up trying this please let me know what you think!!

wow, I had a hard time trying to figure out part 5.3 creating new pages for each section. As you can see I tryed but can not find them, I think I may have done something else. Opps. I also need to organize my paper on here so people can locate the infomramtion quicky. Oh no, I keep going back and seeing things I either did wrong or forgot such as adding an introduction. I have been working on this paper for 6 hours now and trying to figure out everything online is just fustrating for me. I personaly thought it was going to be a lot easier then it was for me. I get confused when I can not find what I am looking for on the page that it directs me in the directions. I wish I knew more about computers to make this a less stressful event for my self. But I need to think I am learning.

Posted by: | April 26, 2009 | 1 Comment |

I talked the librarian on the chat line between me and her and my friends helping me try to search for information on Marie Van Brittan Brown was not very successful. I have changed my topic to Dr. Galina Mindlin, MD, PhD. The librarian and I were able to find a lot more information on. I will be re making my culture page to have information on her now. I am glad I was able to have this opportunity to have this help searching. Now I am less stressed that I will be able to find information on my new women, plus I find her research very interesting!  So be looking forward to reading information in Dr. Galina Mindlin. I did find the chat with the libriarn very successful and helpful, I will be using it again if I ever get stuck with any information in the future.
