Group teaching again this week. Learned about arithmetic expressions, simple and advanced equations. Syntax error – identifies invalid syntax use, tells the location of the error. Learning coding is like learning a different language. Then we had our big project proposals due and we discussed and assessed each part.
Taught strings, slices, and how they work. Teaching is very nerve-racking because you have to know your material and then teach it to others. I had a little trouble understanding strings and indexes because the indexes start at 0, so you have to include 0. My group and I were Read More
First day of student teaching with Exploratory Programming for the Arts and Humanities. Learned about conditional statements, also known as if else statements. Later, we went over abstracts and reviewed other abstracts. There were a lot of interesting ideas. I will be comparing the functions of Wix, Weebly, and WordPress Read More
I never knew anything about coding, until CPSC 110: Intro to Computer Science. I started with Python in that class and it was a very straightforward class. I then got to 220 and learned Java, which was similar concepts to Python, but harder application. I then learned some HTML in Read More
We finished our discussions on Autonomous. We talked about the reliance people had on drugs and terrorism. We finished the week by talking about code and how we feel about it. Coding is a challenge, but given the right instructions and willingness to learn, anyone can code.
In this week, we covered chapters 15 to 18. We explore Paladin’s developing ‘feelings’ and debate whether or not if they are real or programmed. Further, we discussed Paladin’s growing thoughts after becoming autonomous. I also taught again this week and my group discussed the possibility of bots feeling and Read More
This week, we discussed chapters 11 to 14. Discussion started out with data trails and then expanding to if robots would ever feel emotions, as Paladin is supposedly developing feelings. Next, we discussed if bots had human qualities and how that affected their relationship with humans. It was also my Read More
We got through chapters 7 to 10 this week. What we discussed was the credibility of pharmaceutical companies and what autonomy means. One student connected chapter 9 to the 2010 movie, Unstoppable, because of the epidemic of Zacuity. A lot of memes about Chipotle and emboli were posted in our Read More
Week 1 is down. This week we talked about the class and made a glossary for the book we are reading, Autonomous. We then made a Statement of Values and Code of Conduct for the class, which lists expectations for the class. We also got our teaching schedule for the Read More
