The bell rang, and I rushed into the computer lab, my bag in hand, and a jacket in the other.
Computer class wasn’t always an excitement for me.
I don’t know why, but I just don’t get along well with technology as much as other kids.
But that day, I had LOTS of fun learning about a free Photoshop program called “GIMP.”
That was my favorite throughout the whole semester.
At first we learned the basics.
We learned things like making a simple floating logo, paths, red eye removal, and many others.
It was kind of hard for me to learn them because we were using websites of written tutorials instead of videos.
But with the teacher’s help, it was much more easier.
As time went by, we started to learn things such as changing the colors of a cartoon character’s body parts and clothes.
That was really the point where I had most fun.
Using the famous character “Mickey Mouse,” we (classmates) colored its clothes, shoes, gloves, eyes, etc… with many kinds of weird colors.
Most of us ended up with a very strange-looking monster.
In computer class, we learned many things other than GIMP.
We learned a program called “Audacity,” where we wrote a short story, recorded our voices with it, and made the whole class hear it.
There were many difficulties with recording, because there were many noises.
In my audio, you can even hear the crickets chirping.
And another problem was that some of the school computers were broken, and the program did not function as well as other computers (but that wasn’t really a problem for me because I had my own :p).
Other things we learned in computer class was to make a persuasive presentation.
Because I couldn’t think of a topic by the end of class, I had to choose either, “Students should not Date in High school” or “Gay Marriages should Be Legal.”
Of course, as a thirteen year old, young student, I chose the first one.
It went out pretty well, except for the part that I was very nervous during the presentation.
We also learned about how to use the PowerPoint, how to use the Windows Movie Maker, and also about blogging.
Computer class is how I started communicating with you guys!! 🙂
Okay~ This was the story of my experiences in Computer Class this year.
