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 11 (November 2, 2015)

Last week, the Audio/Video Students completed their first video using a wide range of resources.  This week students are finishing up a "Stop Motion" video.  They will use Windows Movie Maker for this project.  Once complete, these students will begin and work on one of two projects.  A "Pep Rally" video and a "Super Hero" video I have not had time to complete.

6th graders will begin "App Inventor" programming this week.  Over the next few weeks, if your child has an Android tablet or phone, they will learn and be able to showcase the apps they create anywhere and at anytime.

If you missed the 2 videos posted last week, here is the link again:  http://goo.gl/xPUfGm

Have a great day!
