- NTHS Rehearsal and Recognition are on Thursday, March 15th. That is THIS Thursday. Similar to last year:
- Dress nice. Ties, bowties, bolo ties… Ties, lots and lots of ties.
- Make sure you have chosen someone to honor you. Also tell them, so they know they need to show up.
- Be here at 6:30. Everything starts at 6:40 and we need the returning students to help out.
- Email Mrs. Whitaker to remind her you ARE or ARE NOT going to be at NTHS. The only reasons for NOT should be serious scheduling conflicts.

9:45 App Design and Balsamiq Wireframes
This morning we are going to start a partner based project where the two of you are going to come up with an app idea. We are going to take that app idea and make it into a wireframe. From there, into a real app. But first, we need to come up with the idea and show what we would plan for a client.
Below you will see a couple of App types, you may choose one of the three. From there, you will decide what you app purpose is.
Information Based App: (Easiest – Max Grade 90)
Information based app is fairly straight forward, it’s an app that really only displays bits of information. A good example would be like a game, movie, or show app. Smite App
Social / Profile App:
Social app is going to be any sort of app that primarily focuses on a individuals “profile” page. Though the main focus of a social app is interaction, we can also make it individual for the user, or mainly focus on the profile and activities that individual is doing.
Physical / Health App: (GPS Incorporated)
This app type focuses on one’s health and physical activity. One of the big requirements for this app type GPS integration. Some basic ideas for this app type is Bike app, running app, food organization app.

Balsamiq is a nice wireframing program that is FREE… for now. We will be using this today rough out of home pages. You must create the ENTIRE home page. Not just what fits in the first bit of the screen. Tomorrow morning / early afternoon we will be presenting these ideas and we MUST have our home pages.
When complete, upload as homeWireframe.jpg to your week_26 folder.

12:45 SkillsUSA / Student Specific Studies
UPDATE – Mr. Cronin has moved his SkillsUSA prep time to afternoons. This really only affects Goodman and Carner.
This is not a study hall. This is not Site Maintenance. This is not a drill.
I will be checking up on your work frequently to see where you are in your progress.
I would high encourage your balsamiq wireframe to be your Daily. Get this out of the way.
Computers off or asleep. Check work and go. Check Dailies
