In today’s world, students must prepare themselves for a wide range of college and work opportunities. For our students who want to lead a happy life and enjoy the good things the world has to offer, all of our students will certainly need a quality education. This year I am working with our junior high students as we learn about Computer Programming. Students in my “Coding” class will be writing and creating programs using the Python programming language. Students will also learn Block style programming for Android Phones and Tablets using the online MIT App Inventor system.

In other various courses I am teaching, students will learn a wide range of technology applications such as MS-Word, MS-Excel, hardware and software concepts along with basic video editing and production. Students will be introduced to 3D design and 3D Printing. All students in my classes will have ample opportunity to learn and practice 21st Century Skills throughout the semester and year.

Week 8 (October 12, 2015)

This week, 6th graders continue working with Python Programming.  Working with the "Turtle Tool" student did more experimentation with yet another more complex program.  As student continue to type in program code, they are getting much better at working out the planted Syntax Errors.  While experimenting with program parameters and colors, students get to see what they are able to create through their programming efforts.

This coming week, students are working on a "Pizza Ordering" calculator.  By the time they are done, they will learn how Cost and Tax calculations are programmed using Python.

8th Grade Audio/Video students are working on a Vacation Video.  Stay tuned to view their great work which will be available soon.
