Target.png Our Big Idea[edit]

The function of every web application system is to accept data, process data and output information. Effective design of interdependent components results in useful function.

Class plan.png What are we going to learn today?[edit]

Hello Class!

By the end of class you will be able to say:


  • I can describe the difference between a local host and a remote host
  • I can demonstrate how to connect to the school server in Frankfurt, Germany (click here if you get confused)
  • I can demonstrate how use the command line terms to navigate to my web directory
  • I can demonstrate output text in PHP
  • I can demonstrate declare variables in PHP

New Learning[edit]

Homework.png What is our homework?[edit]

  • Find one web application (a web based application which accepts input, processes that input, and then outputs some information or data) and be prepared to share it with the class.

Target.png How am I being assessed today?[edit]

I will assess you formatively today, and make a professional judgement to what extent you understand our learning material. I will use observation, your written work, answers to questions, and contribution to class discussions as data to make my decisions. I normally record my observations in a "evidence of learning" spreadsheet, which I will happily share with you privately if you so wish. I usually need a day or two notice.

You will also assess yourself using the same formative rubric I use. Our object here is to answer the question "to what extent do you understand this material".

  • Confidence in dealing with complexity
  • Persistence in working with difficult problems
  • Tolerance for ambiguity
  • The ability to deal with open-ended problems
  • The ability to communicate and work with others to achieve a common goal or solution
