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.

Presentations going well . . .

Last week, students in Principles of Information Technology began their presentations on various subjects relating to "Digital Citizenship and Online Safety".  After creating a series of Google Slides and typing up a script, I must say the presentations are going well.    Students did a wonderful job of creating professional looking "Google Slides" using their Google Accounts.  Not able to display samples of all of the slides here, a good sampling of the work they are doing is showcased below.

In Computer Science, we also completed presentations on the same unit.  While students in Computer Science move on to Python Programming this coming week, samples of the Google Slides for their presentation are also included below.
