Welcome!

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.

Week 6 (September 28, 2015)

This week, our Audio/Video class began their "Travel Log" video.  They used the Internet this week to gather facts about 5 different countries and tourist attractions to visit.  They also took pictures in front of a green screen.  These pictures will be used in learning about Pinnacle Studio and Chroma Key processing.   Once they have placed themselves in a photo of their vacation spots, they will create a video presentation with facts and information using PowerPoint.  The PowerPoint will be converted to a video and completed with Pinnacle Studio.  Titles, Ending Credits and Music will be added.  By the end of this week, I will have some fine vacation videos to showcase.

Our 6th Graders spent the week learning about Python Programming.  As students over came the initial challenges of Uploading and Download files from their Google Drive, the assignments themselves eventually began to work themselves out.  By this coming Friday, I hope students know enough about the first few programming instructions, they will be able to write their own program. Keep in touch to see how it all turns out.
