Congratulations! You've made it to the end of Week Three!

You can see that we've added a lot to this blog lately - have a look at the links on the sidebar! From now on, if you want to know how to do something, look to see if we've written instructions here before you ask us.

Today we're going to show you how to edit pictures - crop, compress, resize your pictures. If you have a camera, you can use our card reader to transfer the pictures you have taken to the student drive (please save them in your own folder or in the 'shared pictures' folder). Once you've done that, follow the 'How to Edit a Picture' link to compress the photo, which will make it easier to upload, then 'How to Upload a Photo' to upload it to your blog. Alternatively, you can use your photo in any of your projects, of course!

Apart from that, continue working on:
  • Your Blogs: Click 'Blog Requirements' to see what else you need to do.
  • Your Projects: Remember that you only have time to type and format in the computer room. You have to plan or write all the text in the classroom before you come to the computer room.
  • Your Class Dictionary: We've decided to present a prize for the best class dictionary on the final Friday night, so encourage your whole class to work hard on collecting words (look at this blog to find lots and lots of computer terms!) and writing their definitions (and remember you can use your definitions to make a crossword, as well!)

And as always:

Remember to Have Fun!
