    Highlights / Metacognition
    =====================
    • What did you think was the most valuable thing that happened for you tonight?
    Learned how to use jsbin, it’s a very powerful tool to program for the web, since it’s very easy to use and we can see the result immediately. Another best thing about jsbin is that it can save the history, so we can go back to see what’s going on.
    • What did you learn from that?
    Sometimes a good programming or debugging tool can really help a lot in coding.
    • What will you do with that knowledge?
    I think I’m going to use this tool in my work as well, just for easy testing and debugging.

    Questions?
    ==========
    • Now that we’ve had our third session, what do you want to know?
    I like to know more tools like jsbin, mediawiki, peerwise, etc. Programming is not something you can done by yourself any more, knowing these collaboration tools really can efficiently improve my programming skills.
    • What could we have done better?
    As long as I can learn something new in each class, it’s good enough.

    Highlights / Metacognition
    • What did you think was the most valuable thing that happened for you tonight?
    Seeing a few different examples of how these abstract terms we’ve been using apply for different kinds of code.
    • What did you learn from that?
    The ways that principles can stay the same while syntax can change.
    • What will you do with that knowledge?
    Understand that whichever specific technical skills I go on to learn, the contents of this course will be applicable.

    Questions?
    • Now that we’ve had our third session, what do you want to know?
    More examples of how we can use these commands and principles to solve other real-world problems.
    • What could we have done better?
    This class was pretty clear.

    Highlights / Metacognition
    • What did you think was the most valuable thing that happened for you tonight?
    Discussing and visualizing all the abstract concepts like variables, arrays, etc.
    • What did you learn from that?
    That understanding different types of variables and how they behave will help you code better. For example, playing with Javascript helped me gain a better understanding of numbers as strings and numbers as numbers.
    • What will you do with that knowledge?
    Play with jsbin and see what works and what doesn’t!

    Questions?
    • Now that we’ve had our third session, what do you want to know?
    How to identify a reliable resource for when we’re researching.
    • What could we have done better?
    Thought the explanations were really thorough already. Reading and researching beforehand really helped prime me for class.

    Highlights / Metacognition
    *What did you think was the most valuable thing that happened for you tonight? I really appreciated the intro to JSBin, it seems like an amazing tool for programming and coding. I love that you can see all of your languages interacting at the same time. Jim’s explanation and examples of this week’s terminology was helpful, especially for arrays.
    *What did you learn from that? I only understood one aspect of an array which would have greatly limited my use of it.
    *What will you do with that knowledge? I cannot wait to begin using JSBin more and see what it is really capable of.
    Questions?
    *Now that we’ve had our third session, what do you want to know? I want to learn more about programming languages. The examples at the end of class raised more questions than they provided answers.

    Highlights / Metacognition

    What did you think was the most valuable thing that happened for you tonight?
    -I really liked your visualizations regarding variables, arrays, etc. It put a sometimes abstract concept into a more solidified one.
    What did you learn from that?
    -I now have a much deeper understanding of the foundations of the code.
    What will you do with that knowledge?
    -I will be able to look back at it and have a better understanding of the syntax of the code. I now have a picture in my head that I can refer to for future projects.

    Questions?

    Now that we’ve had our third session, what do you want to know?
    -I’m excited to do more live examples in jsbin, especially from scratch. It would be interesting to see a complex piece of code written in person.
    What could we have done better?
    -Keep at it, doing a great job. Nice to see the presentation technology working smoothly again.

  6. Margaret says:

    •What did you think was the most valuable thing that happened for you tonight?
    Working in jsbin and getting some hands on experience on code writing.
    •What did you learn from that?
    That playing with code can be fun, once you understand how it works.
    •What will you do with that knowledge?
    I would like to explore it further i.e. have more hands on examples in class.

    Questions?
    •Now that we’ve had our third session, what do you want to know?
    I’d like to see how the code works in the real world of web development, some real life examples i.e. linking JS with the form on the web, but I suppose this would fall under JavaScript course.
    •What could we have done better?
    Great job, Jim! I am really enjoying this course so far.

    Highlights / Metacognition

    – What did you think was the most valuable thing that happened for you tonight? Learning about some of the differences between JavaScript and other programming languages, such as C++ and Java.
    – What did you learn from that? I learned that although most programming languages are similar, they can process information differently.
    – What will you do with that knowledge? I will make sure to use the knowledge going forward. This will be beneficial when I study JavaScript in the future.

    Questions?

    – Now that we’ve had our third session, what do you want to know? I really enjoyed using jsbin.com. I want to have more hands-on experience with it.
    – What could we have done better? The class was great! You did an excellent job walking everyone through what the different data structures are.
