Intro to HTML/CSS

On Khan academy we learned about HTML. HTML is one of the three languages a website is written in and it’s purpose is to mark up the website content. Basic HTML is every website has a head, body, html, and doctype tag. All ending tags must have a / inside the <> before the words. A basic HTML is <p> for paragraph, the tag <em> for emphasis, <strong for bold, and <break> for a break in the line. Another HTML is <h> for heading but there is 3 types of headings. The tag <h1> is the biggest heading, <h2> is the second biggest heading, and <h3> is the smallest heading.

On Khan academy we also learned CSS. CSS is also one of the three languages a website is written in and it’s purpose is to style the website. To style you create a <style> tag to tag to the top and then use a { and put the words color or background color. To style a certain paragraph you give it an id with the <id>. Later to represent it at the top you use the # then the id name. To style a group of paragraphs you use the <class>. Later to represent it at the top you use a period then the class name. In the name it can’t have any spaces and has to be spelled the same with the same caps or it will not work.

It started in July 1946 to June 1948.The computer consisted of 17 instructions and took 52 minutes to get the correct answer. I enjoyed this project especially getting to work with a partner.

Assignment 4- The Debate

School Uniforms Pros/Cons/Opinions 

Pros:

There are many pros of having to wear school uniforms. School uniforms make it easier for students to get ready in the morning by not having to pick out an outfit. Money is saved if students have school uniforms. Peer pressure and bullying is decreased when having to wear school uniforms. School uniforms increase sense of belonging. Improves attendance, discipline and respect for others. These are all pros of having school uniforms.

Cons:

There are many cons of having to wear school uniforms. Violates student’s freedom of expression. Focusing on uniforms distract students from their learning. Students oppose school uniforms themselves. School uniforms promote conformity over individuality. School uniforms does’t stop bullying and might provoke violent attacks. These are all cons of having school uniforms.

Opinion:

I feel that schools uniforms shouldn’t be used. I think that students should be allowed to show individuality. I feel kids should be able to decide what they want to wear. Kids themselves don’t like them so why make them wear them. Students from other schools might bully them for having to wear school uniforms. Uniforms prevent people from being able to show school spirit by having to wear certain things.This is why I think school uniforms shouldn’t be used.

Assignment #3-Digital Footprint

This assignment was about digital footprint. I learned that anything you post is still find able even if deleted. This means that you should take a minute before posting to think does this video make you or others look bad. Think would your mom be happy to see it if not then you shouldn’t post it. Some consequences could be the loss of your job or it could make it hard for you to find a job in the future. Things you post can follow you everywhere.

My favorite was Landon’s safe blogging blog. I liked his because his video was funny and contained great information. He followed the directions and commented on other blogs.It looks like he put a lot of effort into it. Nate’s and Jarrod’s blog were great too but Landon’s was my favorite.
