In today’s world, students must prepare themselves for a wide range of college and work opportunities. All students want to lead a happy life and enjoy the good things the world has to offer. Our students will certainly be provided a quality education. This year I am working with our junior high students as they learn and master a wide range of 21st Century Skills.
In this year’s “Technology Applications” class, students will learn and master various topics associated with computers and technology. For a list of the various technology topics covered in this course, CLICK HERE for a PDF file. CLICK HERE for a Microsoft Word document.

This week, the students did a great job of engaging themselves in their study of new technologies. They are turning out to be great note takers. The notes they have been turning in indicate interest in the subject and their note taking skills show improvement. With more practice over the next week or two, 6th graders will be ready to handle any note taking challenge at any level.
Keyboarding takes place each Friday. The students do not mind the lessons because they know keyboarding skills are important.

Students had a great time as we shared Christmas Breaks with each other.
Students reviewed what was learned from a previous learning activity about robots. Students started another activity to help them investigate and learn more about robots and their history.
Due to Benchmark testing, this activity was not completed this week and will continue on Monday.
Over the next 2 or 3 weeks, students will learn about the evolution of robotics by watching a few film scenes from 3 different time periods. The 1950s, the 1970s and 2000s.
No Proofreading or Typing activity this week. We will continue these activities on Thursday and Friday of the this coming week.
