March – Technology Newsletter

Happy March! We’re starting new projects this month in all of the Technology classes. In Middle School, we just began working with 3d Pens. Students will be working in groups to create a stencil of an object they’d like to model with the 3d Pen. They will deconstruct 3d objects into their basic shapes, plan and draw their stencils and construct the object by welding together the pieces with the 3d Pen. Middle School Elective students have been busy working on building websites in HTML and CSS. The students who’ve taken this class for the second time are working on building their skills and several have begun working on the basics of JavaScript.

In the 4-5 classes we are about to begin a video project using wevideo. They will be taking pages of a book they created with Amber, scanning them, inserting them into a video and recording themselves reading the page. We will then combine all of the videos into one to make a collaborative digital book.

The 2-3 classes are still working on finishing their Internet Safety digital stories on Storyjumper.com. Next up we will be working with iMovie on the iPads to create digital versions of their favorite picture books. They will scan each page and record themselves reading the book.
