4-18-2018 Bobcats, The Spreadsheet program changed the world, making it one of the three original Killer Apps. Now, turn your attention to information in the form of numbers by using the second 'Killer App', the spreadsheet.

Data out on context is not information. A set of numbers and letters are meaningless until they are organized and arranged in context.

con·text

ˈkäntekst/

Today, we start to work with text. Human thoughts written (coded), allows those thoughts to be passed far beyond the life of the writer. The importance of the printed word is that human thoughts could then be passed through the hands of the elite of societies into the minds of the common person. The printing press allowed information to be available to the 'many' when prior to the printing press, information was only available to the 'few'.

So, where are we now? How did human writing get into our computers? ASCII is the answer.

ASCII - The American Standard Code for Information Interchange - How Computers Handle Human Writing

Sharing information - From our brains to Cyberspace

The word processing program was one of the three 'Killer Apps' that made having a computer a necessity. The three powerful pieces of software that made personal computers a must-have-for-success appliance were the word processor, the spreadsheet program and database management software.

You as modern citizen of the world need to know what these programs can do, what humans have done with them and what you will do with them. Part 1, the Word Processor.

MicroSoft Word - a word processor

"A word processor, or word processing program, does exactly what the name implies. It processes words. It also processes paragraphs, pages, and entire papers. Some examples of word processing programs include Microsoft Word, WordPerfect (Windows only), Apple Works (Mac only), and OpenOffice.org." source - http://www.techterms.com/definition/word processor

3-13-2018 Bobcats, This week we explore how to use text in the computer environment. Start with Touch Typing.

Begin class with 10 minutes of Touch Typing Practice. This will be your do now a daily exercise. Log each practice to your Typing journal.

Touch Typing practice

  • keep good typing posture
  • sit up in your chair
  • center the keyboard so that the g and h keys are aligned with the center line of your body (tilt your head down and without turning your head right or left, the g and h keys should be in the center of your vision
  • elbows level or higher than your keyboard
  • keep fingers on home row

    • strike the key, then return your finger to home row
    • do not look at your fingers
      • curl your fingers to fit your fingers to each key
      • all fingers on home row even if you are not striking keys!
      • return your fingers to home row after striking the keys
  • work with the lessons, not the games
  • do all lessons to learn fingering for all keys then do the tests
  • get to the tests!
    • work through the lessons from lesson #1 to lesson #23 in that order then do the tests
  • set all lessons to achieve 25 words per minute for 3 minutes

When you can Touch Type, a Word Processor becomes a very important and powerful tool.

A word processor was one of the three Killer Applications that made a computer a must have appliance, first in the business then in education, now everywhere.

Writing is an amazing way to share knowledge, ideas, fantasies and joy. How do computers deal with text?

3-12-2018 Bobcats, We are on an AM Assembly schedule. How is human writing done in the Cybor world? What is the American Standard Code for Information Interchange?How does word processing work? What is Touch Typing?

A computer is a tool which takes information from the Universe, turns that information into numbers, allows the user to change and manipulate that information

These Assignments should now be on your web site.

Bobcats, This week we explore how to use text in the computer environment, begin Word, a word processor and begin your Touch Typing practice, a daily exercise.

A word processor was one of the three Killer Applications that made a computer a must have appliance, first in the business then in education, now everywhere.

Writing is an amazing way to share knowledge, ideas, fantasies and joy. How do computers deal with text?

How did information become text?

Printing Press (1450)

typewriter idea (1714)

Morse code (1836)

Electrical Telegraph (1746)

Morse telegraph (1838)

Pony Express (~1860-1861)

Teletype (1844)

first commercially sold Typewriter (1868)

American Standard Code for Information Interchange (ascii) (1963)

Internet (1969)

Bobcats, Word processors, the first killer app. The coding of our thoughts, plans, ideas, play and work into an alphabet which is then coded into another computer code known as ASCII (American Standard Code for Information and Interchange) is how human writing is being done today. The writer still must go through rewrite after rewrite to get to the final document but with a word processor much time is saved for production of the document which means more time is available for creativity.

3-1-2018 Bobcats, You now know that binary numbers are the kind of numbers that computers use to code information. This is called digitizing.

Information in the form of text, numbers, graphics, motion graphics, sound, and combinations of these kinds of information, are to the computer, groups of binary numbers. Information in this form are called computer files.

Users can then use information in the form of computer files to change and create new information.

About computer files.

Complete your Birthday and counting from 100-110 in binary on your web site's Notes page.

2-28-2018 Bobcats, A computer is a tool which takes information from the Universe, turns that information into number. The computer uses a numbering system called binary. In the binary numbering system, only two number sysmbols are used, zeros and ones.Read through this page on the binary numbering system.

We will examine the binary system and compare it to the decimal numbering system with which we are so familiar .

It is important to understand the binary system because it is the unit of measure that works in Cyber space.

On your Notes page in Dreamweaver, write, in binary, your birthday and count in binary from 100-110

2-27-2018 Bobcats, Continue with your lists in Excel. You can use Excel to take notes as well.
