The first quarter of the year is finally at its closing hour, and with change in quarters a blog update was deemed necessary. One of Jocelyn Thai and I's long term projects has been the migration of the old Northgate Parent Faculty Club website. The migration has been from standard HTML to a Weebly setup for easier updating and management and should be completed by the end of November at the latest. At this stage, we are working mostly on last minute touch ups and beautification. All the links and content has been updated and double checked for accuracy. The image above is a comparison between the old site and the migrated site.
For our genius hour project, Garrett Smith and I have decided to do a group of projects involving Raspberry Pi 3's to build devices ranging from game consoles to a server block. We had to go through a genius hour slideshow which can be located here. In the beginning stages we will do simpler projects such as a pocket sized retro game emulator and at the end of the year full on a interconnected server rig which several computers communicate to process information.
As a helpdesk member, I occasionally have to do app reviews. The first of which was on an app called SeeSaw. More specifically the mobile app version. The review can be found on my blog here, along with future app reviews being found here.
In addition to those, I have also done some other scattered projects. I reconnected computers to the corresponding assigned printer. I helped transport new tech to classrooms and helped set up the new additions to the classrooms. I've also helped build a desk for the librarians and restored internet to a section of the library.
We were told to do an assignment to get digital citizenship today, so here is the certificate. Its funny as the short answer questions didn't even need to be an answer. A single letter in the box was good enough for the site.
