Our students will learn to use various software programs to create projects based on Common Core State Standards. Students will be able to demonstrate the ability to use technology for research, critical thinking, decision-making, communication and collaboration, creativity, and innovation. They will also use the Internet to play academic games that will help reinforce what they are learning in their classroom.
One definition of the word multimedia is: (of art, education, etc.) using more than one medium of expression or communication. We will be doing just that in our brand new lab. Our students will be learning how to film, podcast, create music, photograph, edit, alter and create images, produce stop motion animation, and so much more.
Fifth grade will also have a select group of students that will be creating an A.G.B.U. Elementary Community Newscast. They will be reporting on the daily life of our students, clubs, events, athletics, and staff. This will be a great way to keep our community informed and involved throughout the school year.
I am looking forward to working with all the students and opening their minds to unlimited creative possibilities.
