Final Exam Part 2

The main idea for this article about the Apple iPad App allows students to take test is basically talking about how this  new invention called the iPad now has a program where all students can take their tests right on it whenever they want and wherever. Honestly i think it is a good idea not only because you can take it whenever you want but also you have more time to take the test instead of like a normal high school exam where you get timed. I think this idea will work and maybe some students might cheat because they have it home and they have internet but the teacher will know right away if you cheated or not because of the way you answered the question, if it is open ended. Also students should be trusted not to cheat and be confident and try there best at it.There also should be some kind of rule if the teacher finds out the student cheated they should warn them to not do it again or they will remove the iPad away from the students. That is my honest opinion about how i feel about students being able to take any test on their iPad's at home .

Essay On Smart Phones.

My Feelings about using smart phones in school is that we should be able to use it and i can give you three great reasons on why i say this. My reasons are that the smart phones can help us with our education, second if we need to search something we don't know and it is dealing with school we use our smart phone, third we can put a reminder note in our smart phone. 

Smart phones can help us with our education by like if your teacher is telling you something that you need to know and you really don't know and you want to find out what it is immediately you search it up on your phone and right away you know what your teacher is talking about. Some schools may not have computers with working internet or maybe in the class your in there is no computers allowed or cellphones or your teacher just doesn't know how to explain things well.

My second reason would be that smart phones are making students smarter by how the smart phones can help students in problem solving and they can post up videos of themselves to other schools so they can watch and learn how a smart phone is good for students everywhere.

My third and final reason would be that if a teacher assigns you  a project and its due the next month but you know your going to forget and leave it for the last minute you just post up a note in your smart phone so that it can remind you and you can be right on task and have a good grade for the day of your project and you wont have to worry or anything.

I have given you three great reasons on why our school should have smart phones and basically all schools should. I hope that all my reasons can change the mind of our principle or whoever ! And let our school have smart phones allowed for each and every student.

how does sound tracks make movies better?

The sound tracks is a great big help for the movie if you want it to be more cooler. With sound tracks you can know when something scary is about to happen or wen its a sad ending and also without sound tracks you wont be so into the movie or feel emotional or scared. So without sound tracks movies or shows or anything else wouldn't be so fun to watch.

Should presentations always have a design template?

Yes i do think that all presentations should have a design template. The reason why i say this is because without a designed template your project will look plain and simple and also boring too . with a design template you can make you work pop out with colors and images . so everyone should have a designed template in their presentation always .

Bullet points?

I think that bullet points are used more then sentences in presentations because when you use a bullet point it makes your work look more proper also it lets you know where are the paragraphs and stuff.

Can using slide animatons help you understand the presentation ?

Yes when you have a presentation to show or do , using slide animations can help you understand the presentation much more better . Basically by when it shows the pictures or animations you can know what it is talking about for insistence if you see a picture of a dolphin and whales and sharks and stuff. You automatically know its going to be about sea creatures. So yes using slide animations can help you understand the presentation better .

How do you feel when your talking and that person isn't listening?

I think it is very important to listen carefully when someone is speaking , and this is important because when the speaker is telling you something you should pay attention so you could learn and know what they are talking about . Lets say your talking to your brother about a problem at school and hes not listening how would you feel ? That's how the speaker feels when you are paying no mind to him/her at all . Always listen and pay attention when someone is speaking .

Copying & Pasteing Work .

Plagiarism is using someone else's work without giving proper credit. And Copyright is using someone else's creative work, which can include a song, a video, a movie clip, a piece of visual art, a photograph, and other creative works, without authorization or compensation. That's the difference between them too . But it is wrong to do anyways so don't do it !

Metal Detectors at Campus High ?

I think that the new metal detectors at our school doesn't make a difference . The school might think that with the new metal detectors that everyone will be safe . But some students can put blades in lotion and in their shoe . Cause the metal detectors does ring when you pass by with metal but the security isn't really doing such a good job on checking us for weapons. I think this is wasting time and also making students late . There is no point for them to install this into our school .

Do you agree with school rule " No Electronics " ?

I Clearly understand why our school doesn't want any students to bring in their electronics like , cellphone , i pods , game devices or even smart phones . They say this because they think that if students bring in their phones and stuff they wouldn't pay attention in school and i know that's true . But sometimes students need their cellphones for emergency's and some kids work better listening to music . Like i do i work faster and better when I'm listening to my i pod.

Should colleges start giving Apple ipads to students?

Yes i think colleges should start giving out Apple iPads to all students , the reason why i think they should is because if you start givin them out to the students they will have more time to save with the ipad because it does have the internet in it and if you need to research something you can do it right there and fast . Also its very helpful.

Why do you think there is so much hype over the ipad?

I think that there is so much hype over the ipad because it is just like the computer you use at home and its more better then your cellphone and iphones and stuff . You can take it anywhere with you ; you can also use the internet , watch movies , listen to music , read newspapers and books and so much more.

Is the interne always correct ?

Sometimes when you search for an answer on the internet . You are always expecting it to be right . But sometimes it just isn't . The way that you can tell its wrong is when you read it and you know it doesn't really make sense then you know it is incorrect . Also when it has something to do with the question and makes perfect sense then it is correct. Just keep in mind the internet is not always right .

Using proper netiquette .

If i see that someone has in error in thier message then yes i do think that i should let him or her no . My reason for why i say this is because if someone has an incorrection you should let them know. Because if it happend to you one day and no one told you and it was a class project and words counted then im sure you would want someone to let you know . So its a good thing you tell that person thet he or she has mad in error in their message .

Cyber Saftey ?

To me it is very important to practice cyber safety and i say this because , if kids dont practice this they can be in trouble . Cyber can be when someone bully's you by either putting up a post of  pictures to hurt or embarrass you . Or it can also be like when someone is constantly sending you text messages , instant messaging or other digital technology to you when you want nothing to do with that person.  So everyone needs to practice this . = ]

Can the internet be used when school is not in session for education?

The intertent can be used when schools not in session for education . But at the same time if you decide to use the internet besides going to school for an education you wont really learn anything as much. Becaise some kids when there in the internet they dont really pay much attention they get distracted by games or chatting websites. Also when you need help with something the internets not always correct therefor you do need school to be in session in order to get a good education as needed. If i had no choice but to participate in this then i would but i wouldnt like it .
