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.

6th Graders did a great job this week as we finished up our MIT App Inventor Programming Unit. After working on 5 introductory Apps to introduce "Block Programming", students were administered a Post Test to ensure knowledge and understanding. 70% of all students tested scored a perfect score of 100%. Given the complexity of computer programming, all 6th graders should be commended for their efforts. Students will be wrapping up the semester with a final unit relating to "Computer Hardware" concepts. Here is a sample of the App students created.
8th Graders in Audio/Video Technology completed an "Event Video". Two of which were showcased on my website "joecorona.net". Students worked on on this project. They are currently working on "Tutorial Videos" to teach others concepts relating to video production. Stay tuned for completed project samples soon.
