We are off to an amazing start in TECH Class! Our 3rd through 5th grade classes are learning/reviewing computer apps processes to follow when using the computers and creating documents.
3rd grade has focused on keyboarding skills and navigating around the keyboard and computers as well as some critical thinking puzzle activities/games and even card tower building(internet-less days).
4th and 5th grade has been reviewing their keyboarding skills and applying them in creating documents (and a typing racing game), beginning to explore some code writing (blockly), some critical thinking "games", and 5th grade is beginning to explore Lego Robots
6th grade has been exploring "ALL THINGS" iPad related. We jumped into the camera app and time lapse video and then applying in iMovie in conjunction with their Water Cycle project completed in Mrs. Duffy's Science Class. We are now beginning to explore in Playgrounds, Apple's Coding App, moving toward more complex coding language and coding tasks.
7/8th grade...the Digital Media Section has been working on creating morning announcements (being on camera, writing scripts, beginning to explore more use of and implementation with the green screen)...the STEM section has worked through some engineering challenges (spaghetti tower), been our testers of new coding kits (littlebits), beginning to start some 3D design and will start playing around with our new robots CUE.
I look forward to continuing through a great year!!!
