ABOUT THIS CLASS: This class uses an enormous amount of technology. We will have entire classes dedicated as technology tutorials, so everyone can learn how to use these tools. We use iPads, chrome books, film making, video making, and bring your own device. This class requires out of the box thinking and I want to hear what you have to say, so speak up. We will use SCHOOLOGY for all HW, Tests/Quizzes and assignment postings-SO YOU MUST CHECK YOUR EMAIL EVERYDAY. Powerschool is only used for your grades and attendance.EDLIO will be used as our social media hub. Plus our cool HMS podcast will be very informative.
