Welcome (back) to Art!
To help stay organized, we will all be using digital portfolios. Basically, this is a way to use the computer to keep all of your assignments and artworks together. You have a few options:
- Many students already use Blogger. If you don't mind having a public blog, this may be your first choice. There are a few tips available *here* that will help you create your blog, but take a peek at *this presentation* that provides a step-by-step tutorial. Keep in mind that this tutorial has been created in another district. You do not have to refer to their school when creating your blog. **REMEMBER TO AVOID USING YOUR FULL NAME when you create your profile and blog address!**
- If you (or your parents) prefer a bit more privacy, let me know. I will help you create a private blog through Edublogs.
- All grade 9 students will be using Edublogs this semester. You will be introduced to this during class, and we will go through login steps together.
Grade 9 students will be using Class Dojo. It's a fun way to keep on track, and parents might enjoy knowing how things are going at school.
Let's start preparing for a great semester. :)
