Middle School Technology

Grades 6, 7, and 8 technology students receive 1 hour of technology instructional time per week.  Advanced standards build upon the office suite application fluency acquired in prior years, and also emphasize desktop publishing, multimedia, and additional applied technology.  Many cross-curricular opportunities manifest themselves at this level with our science, language arts, social studies, drama, video production, and yearbook curriculum among others.  With abundant potential to practically apply their technology skills, the technology program begins to truly expand beyond the one hour of formal classroom time allocated to this group. Each student has their own laptop facilitated by the school. They utilize the laptop for the online textbooks, Spanish and History. At the level students expand their use of Google Apps for Education.
