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 9 (October 19, 2015)


6th Computer Science

Students worked on a couple of more complex programs this week.  Things did not go as smoothly as I would have liked and we did not progress as far as I had hoped.  This week coming is our last week of Python programming.  Our challenge this coming week is to complete 5 programming assignments from a list of 10.  By providing students with choice of programming assignments, effort and quality will remain high to the end.   Stay tuned for samples of the work they will do this coming week.

8th Grade Audio/Video

Working with "Pinnacle Studio 16" turned out to be a bit more challenging than expected for most students due to all the bells and whistles built into the program.  The Vacation Video they are working on still needs background music and their projects need to made into a movie file.  Students will complete a self-evaluation form on their work before uploading the videos to Youtube.  Final assessment and grading by me will be done when I receive an email from each student with the Internet link to the "Vacation Video" they created.  Stay tuned for "Oscar Award Winning" samples.
