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 18 (January 19, 2016)

This week was a busy week as 6th graders worked hard to complete their Social Contract using Microsoft Word.  Not having ever used MS-Word for Desktop Publishing before, students learned many basic, intermediate and advanced features of the MS-Word program. The Social Contracts will be turned in using "Google Classroom" this week as we move into our first test over our classroom rules, policies and procedures.

Here is a sample "Social Contract".

The 8th graders in Audio/Video Technology worked on an assignment relating to Film Careers. Students had the opportunity to use this Federal Government's website which is loaded with information on just about any job or career you can think of.
