MINECRAFT DESIGNER

At the end of class: In your Google Doc for this class, write about what you learned today and how you could use it in your future.

TODAY:

GOAL: You will remix JavaScript code to change the words on a website, learn about composing for the web, coding JavaScript values, and remixing Web content.

OBJECTIVES:

  • Distinguish between original content and a remix
  • Recognize the relationship between HTML and JavaScript elements.
  • Edit JavaScript to change the words on a webpage.

GET STARTED:

  1. Go to https://teach.mozilla.org/ and CREATE an account
  2. In coding/techy vocab, what does REMIX mean and is it legal?
  3. Get a notecard and pen or pencil.
  4. Write down the best homework excuse ever.
  5. Give your notecard to a classmate.
  6. Read the card given to you out loud.
  7. Here is the webpage for today’s activity.
  8. Explore the projectExplore the Homework Excuse Generator by clicking on its button several times.This was made in Mozilla’s Thimble Web editor. This means that you can hit the green “Remix” button in the upper right hand corner of the screen to change all sorts of things on the page, including its title, text, and images.After you hit the Remix button, Thimble will show them the code for the wbepage, as well as the JavaScript code that makes the button work with the webpage. HTML, the language of the Web, shapes the page while JavaScript, a coding language for webpages, makes its interactive parts work.
    • The title of the page on the index.html page.
    • Several values in the arrays, or sets of words’ in the excuses.js file.
    • The credits at the bottom of the index.html page.
       Remix the project

      Look around the Thimble interface. Notice the sidebar to the left that has the main page called index.html, as well as the other files used in the web page, including the JavaScript file called excuses.js.

      Notice that you can hit the ‘Tutorial’ tab on the right side of the screen to switch your view from the webpage to a self-guided tutorial that takes you through the remix activity.

      Do the tutorial at your own pace.

      In the end you should have remixed and changed

  9.  Share your project

    Publish your remix. Hit the ‘Publish’ button in the upper right-hand corner of your mix when you are finished. Thimble will give you a URL, or Web address, to visit and share. Share it with your teacher.Take it a step further.Transform the Homework Excuse Generator into something else entirely, like a gross food generator. Check out the style.css file in the left sidebar and to see what happens when you change values there.

  10. Reflect and review

    Visit your classmate’s machines to see what they came up with in their remixes.

    In your Google Doc for this class, respond to the following:

    • What seemed easiest or most difficult about remixing the page today?
    • How does beginning with a remix help you learn to build something new? Or is beginning with a remix less helpful than beginning with a blank page? Why do you think so?
    • How would you explain the connection between the HTML – or webpage – in this activity and the JavaScript file?

Fix your newsletter for a better grade.
