TEJ3M/TEJ4M – February 29, 2016

I began the class today by reminding the students that their computer architecture report is due today by the end of the period.  I also reminded the students that there only needs to be 1 report submitted for each group and it will go towards their mark for this project.

After talking to the students about the report, I then told them to continue to work on with their partners on their Computer Architecture Assignment/Report.  Once they were finished installing Windows XP, they are to look for on the internet, any software drivers they need for hardware that has not been installed (I showed them how to do this on the digital projector).  Once the students have all of their drivers installed, they are to log on to the internet and then install the following software programs on their computer:

Microsoft Office 2016, AVG Free Edition, Super-Anti Spyware and Pedal Power (LAN party game)

Once the students have finished installing all of the software listed above, the students were given a video to watch first and a handout to look over, showing the steps on how to make a RJ45 network cable.  The students were given a their own network cable to work on, which they will be able to take home once they are completed.  I will be marking this task on a pass/fail basis.

Below you will find a copies of the handouts/worksheets that were distributed/assigned in today’s class.
