Our Big idea

The big idea for today is Web science.

The essential questions for this topic are:

What is the web, really? How is the web made? How do we design and build web-based applications?

It takes time to explore and really understand a big idea. If you want to
learn more about web science (which is connected to today's daily note), please click here .

We are learning this because as a designers must understand scientific and technical innovation. Designers use systems, models, methods, and processes to solve problems.

Reminders & routines:

IF (today ==  testing_day_for_me) {

As I am taking attendance:

  1. For students who are physically at ASW: Please check now: am I connected to the American School of Warsaw wireless network
  2. Please check now: is visual studio code working from my programming folder?
