    The most valuable thing that happened for me last night was learning that search engines do not rely solely on finding key-terms in the text of a webpage. From this i learned that it is all much more complicated that i imagined. With this knowledge I will try to understand what I don’t understand, so that I might conduct research more efficiently.

    As a beginner in web designing, i came to know about basic facts about semantic webs and looking forward for more on this.
    What did you learn from that?
    learned about Modernizr, html5 inner shiv, html5shim, history and its development of semantic web, how to link a page to the server, etc
    What will you do with that knowledge?
    Design a web page.

    What did you think was the most valuable thing that happened for you tonight?

    Learning the history of HTML and the web

    What did you learn from that?

    There is no literal HTML5, it’s just semantic HTML

    What will you do with that knowledge?

    Helps further my knowledge.

    Questions?

    Now that we’ve had our first session, what do you want to know?

    Some of the cool stuff I’ve seen people working with HTML5 create

    What did you think was the most valuable thing that happened for you tonight?
    Rod>> That HTML5 is not some further HTML offshoot from HTML2, HTML4, XHTML, etc, but rather more simply the top of the current stack of where HTML is currently going (I had rather imagined that it was more akin to the situation where you have several ‘C’ look-a-likes, C, Java, C++, Objective-C, C#, where they are all sort of similar, but whose details can and do often depart into different subcultures; consider for the example the disparity between say Object-C and C++11).

  5. Michele says:

    What did you think was the most valuable thing that happened for you tonight?
    Understanding the history behind how HTML5 came about.
    What did you learn from that?
    I learned of the different “players” involved (WHATWG/W3C/HTMLWG), and how the three organizations work together to ensure interoperability and compatibility.
    What will you do with that knowledge?
    With this knowledge, I will explore the use of various workaround and tools to build standards-compliant web pages with HTML5.
    Now that we’ve had our first session, what do you want to know?
    I want to know more about what I can do with HTML5 a part from what I’ve already learned from the previous HTML5 1 course.
    What could we have done better?
    The first session was a lot of listening. Although that was great, I hope the next session will give us an opportunity to type code, follow-along, and experiment “hands-on” :).

    Highlights / Metacognition

    What did you think was the most valuable thing that happened for you tonight? — Established a good foundation of understanding behind why HTML5 is the way it is.

    What did you learn from that? — Why web-development seams like a mishmashed mess of workarounds, hacks and shivs.

    What will you do with that knowledge? Use best-practices/other peoples hardwork (libraries etc) to get through the mess.

    Questions?
    Now that we’ve had our session together, what do you want to know?
    — Pro’s/Con’s of HTML being a “living standard”

    > It was interesting to learn a bit more about the history of the web and HTML. The work-arounds for older browsers are very useful!

    What did you learn from that?
    > That there are many “players” involved in the development of the Internet and that there are a lot of things to think about when designing a website.

    What will you do with that knowledge?
    > Hopefully I will remember about the work-arounds.

    Questions?
    > I’m still not entirely clear how to use those work-arounds but I’m sure I will soon find out 🙂
