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.

Ready for work? You bet!

This week, students in "Principles of Information Technology" completed their Career Exploration Unit by completing 4 job applications.  Two paper applications were completed for learning and practice.  A third paper application was completed for a grade.  For the third application, a wide range of applications were provided from various San Antonio and local businesses. Applications from Subway, Bill Miller, HEB, Olive Garden, Game Stop, Whatabuger and a few others were provided for their experience.  A fourth application was completed online.  While this was a generic application, it gave students an opportunity to experience completing and submitting an application online.

This coming week, students will begin working on a final project. This final project will have students sharing what they learned.  Three projects are provided for their choosing.  Students can choose from a 3-Fold Brochure, A Google Website or a Video.  Stay tuned, I expect these projects will be their best work yet.  

In "Computer Science", student continue to program in Python.  As students work toward the end of this unit, they will be creating a program on their own by viewing various videos on Youtube.  By doing this, students will become familiar with the concept of  "Self-Learning" by using an outside source.  Various options for Python Programs will be made available.

Stay tuned, as this unit wraps up, a final project will have these students showcasing what they learned about Python.
