Index cards

Something i got from my high school teacher, the infamous Mr. L---- (the guy lectures on top of tables, goes to school in a vampire costume, and gives an incredible RPG-type exam)

Here's the information i require my students:

  • name (nickname)
  • student number
  • address
  • mobile email
  • birthday
  • PC comfort level - how used are you using computers? are you afraid that touching the wrong key can make it explode, install software, can you set up your own OS, assemble your own PC from components and not buy a "computer set" setup a webserver, etc...
  • PC Access questions - how easy it is for you to get to a computer?
  • The most difficult task you've had involving computers
  • Describe your last computer science class
  • what was your grade?
  • who was your teacher?
  • how do you study?
  • are you: confident/shy talkative/quiet active/passive
  • favorite tv shows,movies,music,books
  • if you could meet anyone in the world, past or present or future, fictional or real, who would it be and why?
  • which star would you like to portray your life in a movie?
  • describe the perfect computer science class?
  • what other computer science concepts would you like to learn?
  • what are other things about you that you'd think i need to know?
  • quote
  • schedule
  • Express yourself - this part of the indexcard (around 1/4 of it) is for you to do anything. draw, write, whatever you want (except stuff that can ruin the back part of the index card)-- this part is fun. =)

Its fun to bring this index cards to graduation parties where my students gasp in horror over the silly things they have written down. ;)

I usually have these sent through email, but there is something to say for having index cards.
