Today Mrs. Arnold and myself met for the first time with interested students for a school Technology Club. Here is what we discussed:
*Technology club is open to students in grades 6-8
*Assignments must be turned into teachers in all classes to be eligible. If missing assignments occur then students will be suspended from the club for up to 2 weeks.
*Behavior- No more than 1 checkmark or 1 chance taken away. If this happens students will be suspended for up to 2 weeks.
*May have Google e-mail access
*Students can use computer lab for projects M-Th 7:50am-8:20am, lunch, recess, or after school until 3:30pm
Projects and Jobs:
*Students will assist with App purchases and downloads. App evaluations.
*Students will create "how to" videos or demonstrations. They may get a chance to teach adults about computer programs or iPad basics.
*Next year students in the club will be responsible for the Aquin Newscast.
The club will meet Tuesdays 2x a month.
Next meeting will be Tuesday, February 5th, 2013
Welcome to my page. If you are here, you are most likely a student, parent, or curious fellow teacher. No matter who you are, I am glad you came to visit. Feel free to ask questions and comment on my blog posts. I will try to write frequently about what is happening in the Computer Lab at Aquin Elementary.
This year is my 5th year working at Aquin. So far, even though I have been overwhelmed at times, I really love it! Technology has been a passion of mine for about 16 years or so. I started enjoying the programs and workings of computers while doing a work study in my college computer lab. Since then, I have tried to stay up to date with technology and use it as often as possible. Being computer literate doesn't mean you need a fancy degree, you just need to be willing to try new things in the technology world...often!
