On Monday I began my new class, Behavioral Science in FS3-111 with Mrs. O. I am very excited about this class and looking forward to learning all about how the brain works and why we think the way we think. First class went very well other than the chairs. It is going to be rough for me to sit in these tiny little chairs for a whole month 5 hours at a time. Lots of new students in this class because this is their first month. People who are on the fast track start off with Digital Literacy & Behavioral Science. So most are clueless on how this school works. Since I have been here a month I feel like I have already adapted to the way things roll.
Today I started on one of my projects where I had to walk around school and take a few pictures to add into an assignment. Here are some of the results just for fun. I had to take a picture of myself at the library, pointing at my Parietal Lobe, also a picture of me describing one of my many multiple intelligence’s. I choose the wall of video games and described how I am very knowledgeable of video games from many years of playing them.
Saved the best for last!
Look at that! 100% all the way down! I kicked some major butt in that class and all my hard work paid off. My teacher, Mr. Hayes, gave me nothing but high remarks on each and every one of the projects and assignments I turned in. Gonna try and do it again in Behavioral Science. I really think I am going to graduate with a 4.0
My Digital Literacy has been going great! Been working well with my group Team Galaxy. We had a fun project on Wednesday where we got to leave class for 45 minutes and walk around campus and take some pictures. This is the picture I took. It is a Panorama of a portion of our library. The point of doing this is to give the pictures to a different group and they have to use digital tools like www.verexif.com where you can take ay picture and enter it into the website and it will give you all the digital meta data that the picture has such as GPS Location. Example Below.

Crazy to see how much someone can find about you just from one picture! So be careful what you post on Facebook or any other social media website. People can find a LOT more than you think they can.
Here is my second project I got to do, Researching Credible Connections. My second attempt at PowerPoint. This one was less technical we just had to research several different words using the different new research databases that we are learning about. Hoping to clear another 100% A on this one. Having no doubt it will happen. Let me know what you think so far?
