Welcome!

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. For a list of the various technology topics covered in this course, CLICK HERE for a PDF file. CLICK HERE for a Microsoft Word document.

Presentations Galore

Principles of Information Technology


This week, students concluded their presentations on "Digital Citizenship" and "Online Safety".  With the proper preparation of slides and script for their presentation, the presentations not only looked professional, but were very informative. As part of their training, the presentations were video recorded for self-evaluation.


Each student evaluated their own presentation by commenting on what they liked about their presentation and what improvements were needed.  Students had to also assigned a letter grade to themselves for the efforts and the results.  With another presentation coming up in about 3 weeks, students will have a chance to practice what they learned this week.

Computer Science

Students are concluding their "4 Screen" Career app and getting ready to move on to an "8 - 12 Screen" Museum App.  From the time these students began working in App Inventor, to now, great improvements are seen in screen design, quality of information presented and their understanding of how apps come together.   Here is a sample video of a few "Career" apps in action.
