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.

Summer Session Update

This week was a busy week.  Students were completing and modifying the apps created for Pre-Kinder and Kinder students.  Students were asked to select any app they have created and are proud of, for the purpose of showcase.  Not all work has been pictured and videoed as of yet and a few more are needed to complete a video of sample work.

Students completed a "2 Part" exam as a mid-semester assessment consisting of a knowledge based test and a hands-on component consisting of an app to create.  All students did a great job of demonstrating knowledge, proficiency and confidence in their ability to create an app.

Next we we are moving on to the "Voting App" we have been waiting for.  Stay tuned and once again, a video of sample work will be available soon.
