Scratch Day 3

Students have been working pretty hard on their games. We are starting to get a sense of how Pixlr works and learning some basic computer knowledge such as:

  • How to save or open files. 
  • Distinguish between different file formats or extensions 
    • .pxd
    • .png
    • .jpg or .jpeg
    • .gif
  • Upload and download files
  • What is the H: drive?
  • What is Google Drive?
  • What is (http://goo.gl)?
  • What is opacity?
We also reviewed http://cooltext.com which allows students to create interesting text images using the vast set of fonts on this site.

Most students completed Step 2 and a few students were on Step 3 of the tutorial:
