All Grades will also cover:

As this course is focused on exploring a lot of different technologies, the emphasis is on “learning by doing.” Each module will have a score based on three indicators:
Effort/Participation/Engagement - this is achieved through connecting to class Zoom meetings and online discussions, and submitting assignments.
Completion of classwork - this is achieved by taking part in all class assignments and maintaining a Digital Interactive Notebook.
Summative assessments - for example, Exit Tickets, Quizzes, and project products.
All assignments are tracked on Canvas, and unit based scores are posted on Aspen/X2 on a bi-weekly basis.
Please feel free to reach out at any time with questions or concerns.
