Day 7 Reflection

Julia and I are clinging to the WordPress site set up cliff, but we are hanging on. I made this infographic for our presentation and embedded it, with hopes that it helps explain what we did. Thanks to Craig for mapping it out on paper first and for the uber helpful “build a house” analogy. I will embed our Google Slides once we have finished them up.

And I am keen to try some of the photo manipulation tricks we were shown this morning with a whack of photos I took outside the Miro museum after lunch.

Demo Table Post

Hi Meagan, here’s a “cleaned up” version of your table that has borders. Note that you may need to click on the title of this post (Demo Table Post) to see it in action:

Standard 2008 2015 Draft
1 An education leader promotes the success of every student by facilitating the development, articulation, implementation, and stewardship of a vision of learning that is shared and supported by all stakeholders. Education leaders build a shared vision of student academic success and well-being.

I built it using the following HTML code. Note that I also needed to add in a few CSS rules (edit this page and find the “Custom CSS” block below the editing window to see these rules). The issue you were having on your 1st table had to do with the fact that may of the “older” HTML properties are ignored by newer browsers. In fact, all of the formatting options that were common back in the late 90’s / early 00’s have been replaced with CSS rules. Come see me after class and I can give you a “crash course” on CSS – it’s not that hard and it is incredibly powerful!

<table style="width: 100%;"><colgroup> <col style="background-color: skyblue; width: 10%;" span="1" /> <col style="background-color: beige; width: 45%;" span="2" /> </colgroup>

The best things in education come from sharing among teachers.

1) Set up an account    https://www.pinterest.com

2) Set up a Board and add collaborators who can also add to the collection of ideas and links.
