Technology News: December 2012
In 2/3 technology, students have been working hard on their current project, called “kinetic contraptions”. Students are learning about the engineering design process and working in teams to build their own contraptions! They are also using the iPads to document their work with photos and videos.
In the 4/5 technology classes, students have finished their slow motion videos, and we celebrated this by watching them in class during our last session. We were off last week for Thanksgiving, but will be starting a new cross-curricular project integrating technology, language arts, and social studies, based on the “Pure Michigan” ads.
The Middle School technology classes have been finishing up their data collection activities and reflections. I expect all classes to be done by the first week of December, allowing us to start our next project at that time.
