This semester has been very entertaining for me in school because it is my last semester before I graduate at Pellissippi. I took classes that I was mostly just interested in, and taking this class has been a really good decision. Since the beginning of this class I knew I would enjoy it. We started out learning to the history of computers, which was cool because most of the people I have never heard of and should of known because they started what is now the computer. The week after that we did Binary. I was kind of uncertain about this subject, but honestly this was one of my favorite weeks in the class. I do not like math at all so I was thinking great I am not going to understand this, but I did and it was easy and fun at the same time. The next to weeks after that were getting use to the software and hardware. I did learn alot these two weeks that I should of known before hand. but didn’t. The first month I loved this class and I really liked blogging which I never did, and the quizzes were great and easy and would help your grade. The tests in this class were knowledge just what you learned in class. He was not trying to trick you or anything.
The next month of the class we learned about networking and databases and security and language! There is so much to learn in these chapters but still very entertaining. My favorite one of these would be the security and language. I liked the programming language because it kind of felt like a code I knew and no one else did. When we did security we did Scratch. I enjoyed scratch because it was the first programming language that I have dealt with and It was really fun! In the network part of this chapter we learned about HTML. I already have seen HTML, but never knew what it stood for or why we use it. Then we did Robots.. this week I honestly was having senioritis, and was wanting to sleep and was ready to graduate, and I really regret that. I wish that I could of been there more to learn and play with the robots more than I was. We did artificial intelligence and virtual reality. I liked virtual reality and wish we had more time to play with Alice. I enjoyed scratch so I knew I would like Alice, but I will probably download Alice on my free time.
This class has been one of my favorite classes that I have taken at Pellissippi. My favorite part of this class was making my own webpage. I got to put my interests in there and make it any color I wanted to and put my favorite pictures onto it! I learned sooo much in this class that I can take to the next level of my education and also just dealing with computers in general. I highly recommend this class. In the beginning I thought it would be overwhelming and too much, but i’m glad I stayed with it! 🙂
