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 2 - We're off to a great start

Students concluded our second week by learning to work with Microsoft Word and Tables.  In creating our Class Picture Project, students learn a variety if beginning, intermediate and advanced features of Microsoft Word. Students learned to change page orientation, adjust page margins and create a table with the appropriate number of columns and rows. Students merged cells, adjusted font style and size, inserted pictures and adjusted their sizes.  By learning to work with and mastering the graphic capabilities of Microsoft Word, students develop many "Graphic Design" skills usable in a variety of work environments.
