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.

6th Graders are Hard at Work

While behind a little, the time has come to share some of what students are creating.

Having completed Module 1 (Microsoft Word and Tables), students learned and are now able to use their Microsoft Word skills to create graphic projects they never imagined they could.  In order to create these Table projects, students had to learn and use the following Graphic and other features of Microsoft Word 2016.

Change Margins
Change Page Orientation
Create a Table
How to add Table Borders
How to add Page Borders
How to Merge Cells
Change Font Style and Font Size
How to Align Text
How to Insert Pictures and Change Picture Size

Many students are on the verge of completing Module 2 (Digital Citizenship) and will be adding to their Graphic Design Skills as they create their Final Projects, take their Post Test and move on to a Self-Learning Module of their choice.  Samp;les of work from these modules will be available soon.

Here are some samples of what the students have created.  There is one sample from each class period.

Social Contracts

In creating Social Contracts, students in class contribute to the Social Norms we will adhere to in the class.  As a result, each class period is different.
