What do you do in technology class??? Each day in technology class can look different. We work on all content areas: Math, language arts, social studies, science, health...etc. Technology teachers plan and collaborate with grade level teachers to incorporate content. We also continually focus on Digital Citizenship topics and Internet Safety. In technology we plan instruction based up ISTE Standards. Our lessons are UDL friendly and we work to incorporate the SAMR model. What tech is used? Each student in technology class has a login code and password to their own personal MacBook computer. They save their work to their specific computer each week. Students learn many different applications in technology class. Frequent apps and software that is used, but not limited to: Microsoft Office, Pixie, ComicLife, Kidspiration, GoogleAppsforEducation, iMovie, GarageBand as well as many educational websites. Students often use WorldBookforKids as well as SIRS for research. See your child's classroom teacher's website on CANVAS for additional online resources that are used with your child! Assessment In technology class we assess students in many different ways, however there is no specific grade in technology class on the report card. Some classroom teachers may average technology assignments into their specific content grade, but that is different from teacher to teacher. If any students is struggling in technology class, the parent will be notified by the technology teacher. Have any other questions about technology class? Contact us!
