    Highlights / Metacognition

    1) What did you think was the most valuable thing that happened for you tonight?
    Testing out Javascript in class with jsbin and being asked to complete an additional step on our own.
    2) What did you learn from that?
    This was my first time trying to figure out how to do something on my own with Javascript (not just copy/pasting to see the result). I learned that I might actually be able to understand it!
    3) What will you do with that knowledge?
    Continue practicing/learning Javascript and paying more attention to it when I see it – try to figure out what the javascript will do before I test it and how to change it.

    •What did you think was the most valuable thing that happened for you tonight?
    -The most interesting thing for me last night was the javascript error I kept receiving when attempting the “I will not … “ example in class.

    •What did you learn from that?
    -I learned that javascript, like other programming languages, can be picky when it comes to certain wording. The error kept occurring due to the word “Do” in my “if” condition statement. The reason for this is that javascript has a “Do Loop” and was trying to perform it without the proper syntax within my “if statement”.

    •What will you do with that knowledge?
    -When using the word “Do” within a condition statement, to leave it as under case and the statement should run fine.

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

    Working with JSBin and JavaScript.

    What did you learn from that?

    Although I’ve used other languages, picking up JavaScript may not be too hard.

    What will you do with that knowledge?

    Continue using JavaScript and hopefully making a career out of it.

    HIGHLIGHTS

    1) What did you think was the most valuable thing that happened for you tonight?
    Working with JSBin and Javascript – having somewhere to start (copy and paste) and then being asked to change the function of the Java.

    2) What did you learn from that?
    This was more then copy and pasting and finding out what happened, this was having to actually think about what I would need to do in order to change the course of the Java.
    I found that it was challenging, but not impossible – It’s starting to make more sense and that’s exciting!

    3) What will you do with that knowledge?
    When I see Java, take a look at it and predict what it might do before playing around in JSBin and challenging myself to learn more Java on my own.

  6. Wan Qi Jin says:

    What did you think was the most valuable thing that happened for you tonight?
    Working with JSBin and JavaScript.
    What did you learn from that?
    – Basic Understanding how to apply the theoretical knowledge of variables, arrays, and iteration through JavaScript.
    – How the JavaScript works through JSBin and why it’s not working sometimes.
    – The relationship between different Variables in the coding part.
    What will you do with that knowledge
    JavaScript is too hard for me to understand. For me, I need to take a time, slow down and keep practices it.

    1) What did you think was the most valuable thing that happened for you tonight?
    Gaining experience in JavaScript by coding with jsbin.
    2) What did you learn from that?
    JavaScript seems to be not so difficult to understand as I thought it might be.
    3) What will you do with that knowledge?
    Learning more about JavaScript and find out how I can apply it on webpages.

  8. Janice says:

    What did you think was the most valuable thing that happened for you tonight?
    -Learning more about JavaScript coding using JSbin

    What did you learn from that?
    -First you have to define the problem and then figure out how to solve it. Declaring the right variables is important.

    What will you do with that knowledge?
    -This will help me in the future if I need to code JavaScript from scratch or if I need to modify some code.
