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 past week was very productive.
6th graders continue with with coding using the Python Programming Language. They learned how to work with the Python "Turtle Tool" allowing them to draw squares and circles. Students are having fun as they learn to code, test and debug their programs. This week, they will continue working with the "Turtle Tool" as their programming exercises become more sophisticated.

8th Graders in Audio/Video are in the middle of creating a vacation video. Last week they learned to work with Pinnacle Studio 16 as they had to take their green screen pictures and process them with pictures from 5 different countries and tourist attractions. This coming week, they will be using PowerPoint as they take their vacation pictures and combine them with facts and information relating to the countries and tourist attractions they visited. They will complete their project in Pinnacle Studio as they add titles, credit and music to their video.
Stay tuned next week to check out their completed videos.
Have a safe and blessed week.
