Learning Cycle

Can you see how this applies to what you are doing before our sessions and while we are together?

Please reply with a comment about our second session.

Highlights / Metacognition

  • What did you think was the most valuable thing that happened for you tonight?
  • What did you learn from that?
  • What will you do with that knowledge?

Questions?

  • Now that we’ve had our second session, what do you want to know?
  • What could we have done better?

If you spot a question from someone else and you can answer it – please do.

This week’s assignment:

  1. Complete the page outline you started in the lab.
  2. Build a single web page that uses the new elements that we discussed in class (article, section, … and more).  Build that based on your template your_name30.html. Call it your_name03.html.  Use the links for html5 validation and outlining to test your work.
  3. PeerWise:  Add at least one question and answer all unanswered questions.

    •What did you think was the most valuable thing that happened for you tonight?
    The various elements used to delineate content in a webpage

    •What did you learn from that?
    It helped me to look at webpages in more discrete and distinct components.
    •What will you do with that knowledge?
    Create an outline of the page I want to do before actually trying to code it straight.

    •Now that we’ve had our second session, what do you want to know? •What could we have done better?
    Going well so far.

    Most valuable thing that happened: Learning about the differences between different HTML elements.

    What I learned: When & where to use each tag.

    How I will use the knowledge: Will be helpful when editing code that contains these elements.

    What did you think was the most valuable thing that happened for you tonight?
    It was nice to see exactly what semantic means in relation to HTML5 and it’s ability to be able to make data more interpretable by machines
    What did you learn from that?
    That some restructuring of my sites and tags can possibly help search engines potentially better interpret my sites.
    What will you do with that knowledge?
    I’ll have to go back and look at some of the themes that my sites use that claim they’re HTML5 compatible and see if they’re making use of some of the new tags and if so if they’re using them properly

    Questions?

    Now that we’ve had our second session, what do you want to know?
    Still looking forward to microdata.
    What could we have done better?
    As usual your pacing seems fine. I am just happy to continue my ride through the course.

    Most Valuable: Learning about the various new elements and where they fit within a properly written page.
    How Will I Use This: It will be helpful when writing industry compliant website in the future.
    What Can We Do Better: All good so far, great stuff.

  5. Yuki says:

    most valuable was learning the new elements and their usages.
    I want to use this in my work so need to really understand real world implementations.
    Reading about the elements, I am also very interested in trying out the element SVG. Can we do an example of this in class?
    Really good class so far…

      Hi Yuki,
      We’re going to keep our focus on the semantic aspects of HTML5 this week. Next week we will be learning about the other HTML5 elements that don’t require JavaScript.

      Normally we would talk about SVG (Scalable Vector Graphics) very briefly next week. I’ll see if we can get into it a little bit tonight, but our agenda is tight as it is.
      We get into SVG in more detail in another course
      HTML5 3 – Building Dynamic Experiences with JavaScript (mainly in contrast to the new HTML5 Canvas Element). Did you know that SVG has been an open standard since 1999?. Unfortunately it wasn’t until the last few years that there has been support for it in all the major browsers.

      I will have resources for you to pursue on your own if you like, but we’re going to be hard pressed to do anything in-depth or hands-on with SVG.

    •What did you think was the most valuable thing that happened for you tonight?
    — Learned in details about some interesting tags like article,section,nav, aside, address, main etc.

    What did you learn from that?
    — What their differences are and when and how to use them

    What will you do with that knowledge?
    — Will use it when required

    What could we have done better?
    — So far so good

  7. Albert. says:

    What did you think was the most valuable thing that happened for you tonight? Learning about semantics and how it relates to html5.
    What did you learn from that? I like the semantic elements and how it’s structured.
    What will you do with that knowledge? Will have to go back and organize my past websites in a better way.

    Questions?

    Now that we’ve had our second session, what do you want to know?
    What could we have done better? Pace is good. Everything is good.
