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.

Our First Unit; a Huge Success

My 6th graders in "Technology Applications" just completed their first unit in Graphic Design.  Using Microsoft Word 2016 as a medium, students had to learn, know and master a number of beginning, intermediate and advanced features of the program.

To complete the project, student had to know the following:

Open a Microsoft Word document
Set Margins
Change Page Orientation
Change Font Style
Change Font Size
Create a Table
Merge Cells
Split Cells
Insert Pictures
Resize Pictures
Add Color
Change Table Borders
Add a Page Border
Save their Microsoft Word Documents

For many students who had little or no experience with a Word Processing program or Microsoft Word specifically, these students did a fantastic job of creating their projects.
