I agree that it is strange to think that a set of letters can spark a feeling, like claustrophobia. It’s interesting that your favorite word provokes displeasurable feelings; the word itself is just too fun to say. It’s understandable to dislike igloos. They don’t really have anything going for them–just cold and confined. I like that you…[Read more]
It is interesting that happiness can be quantified, and some countries have a greater level of happiness than others. Like you said, happiness is difficult to define since it can be relative–happiness can vary from person to person. My dad spent a lot of time in Norway when he was younger, and he says that the happiness of the people is…[Read more]
I asked myself what the future of technology has in store for us. There is bound to be a new Internet or smartphone, something that will change how we live our daily lives. I was curious of what this is going to
I’m interested with your post because you view the future full of new technology that will grab ones attention. Getting to understand your ideas of how you believe there will be a “new internet”, self driving cars , and eye controlling technology. What caught my eye was when you said,”There is an enzyme that scientists can put into your DNA that takes out a mutation and replaces it with what should actually be there.” If scientist can really go through this process it can be life changing because people with illnesses that involve the DNA can be cured and treated will. Not will it change history as we know it we can learn from it and advance higher then we already are.
I am satisfied with your post because I like your predictions and your thoughts in technology that could possibly exist in the future. I am also interested in knowing what technology will exist in the future. It is great to get to know your ideas on self-driving cars and you gave me some great thoughts about the future. One thing that you said that stands out for me is “There is a lot of excitement about the future of technology, and there are some promising ideas that could change our daily lives.” I think this is interesting because it is making me think about good ideas for the future and that our lives can become easier for us with all this new technology. It will be so life changing if an engineer invented new technology like you said self driving cars and controlling technology with our eyes like those inventions seem really amazing to invent. I look forward to learning more about your ideas and finding out new technology that could be invented.
I took pictures of dinosaurs to practice techniques that apply to portraiture such as depth of field. The shallow depth of field is what gives the pictures the blurred background. To achieve this, I used a large
Skip Schmiett, a commercial photographer, came into our class to teach us about portraiture. He told us about how he became a photographer: he was inspired during his trip across Europe. He emphasized the
Dr. Houdeshel is a science teacher at Judge. He is an important member of the Judge community, and although I have never taken one of his classes, I can tell he is a very smart and a good teacher. His classes seem
Philippe Halsman was fortunate enough to be deeply connected with the most famous and influential people of his time. He was responsible for capturing and preserving these people with the portraits that he took.
This is a youth-powered social network that was started in 2003 by a group of teachers from local sites of the National Writing Project.
We merged several earlier blogging projects. We have found that there are many advantages to bringing students together in one site that lives beyond any particular class. It's easier for individual students to read and write about their own passions, to connect with other students, comment on each other's work, and create multimedia posts for each other. Further, it's been exciting for us to pool our knowledge about curriculum, connected learning, and digital literacies.
If being part of such a community makes sense to you, we invite you to join us. We welcome all youth and any teacher interested in having students publish online and participate in the give and take of a social network like Youth Voices.
