Fall 2020 Week 12

MSMC students are studying excel the rest of the semester, which includes creating charts, formulas, and functions. We also are reviewing types of Digital Communication, such as blogs, and wikis, and the purpose of netiquette. Some computer topics include crowdfunding and crowdsourcing. We discuss the positives and negatives that come from social media platforms.

Marist digital toolbox students are finishing up their InDesign projects. We are discovering the topic of storytelling and students are writing their video scripts for their up coming 2-minute video. My technology class is working on their research papers and power point projects, which are both due next week. These students will be writing a career resume video script this week.

SUNY Ulster students will be reviewing definitions for culture, diversity, and inclusion. The students will be learning what good stress is and ways to manage stress. Each student will be researching a international country and what are the similarities and differences between Eastern and Western cultures. The goal is to discover the need to accept and respect each cultural other’s differences, so that we can coexist in society.

Yeah, we have a less than month to go until finals. Some students have already left for home because of the rise in covid cases. Hopeful, there will be a vaccine in the very near future, so we can return to some sort of normalcy. I am so looking forward to Thanksgiving break, but as usually I will be grading papers and projects.
