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.

Week 29

Students completed their very first spreadsheet this week.  We didn't start with a small and simple spreadsheet, but one which was large and complex.  I threw them into the water and all the students proved to be champion swimmers.

Each student started with a list of household items they believed to be essential to setting up their first apartment or dorm room.  As students gathered information from various store websites, they learned about manufacturers and descriptions.  In the process, many students learned and commented on the cost of essential household items.  Many had no idea things could cost so much.

Here is a small sampling of the great spreadsheets created by all 6th Graders.
