MIDDLE SCHOOL GRADE 7-9 Information Technology

The information technology and media curriculum is formally taught once weekly. Students learn to use computer and information technology resources as tools. These skills are then incorporated throughout the curriculum. The classes explore network navigation and digital organization, continued support of touch-typing skills, and deciphering research on the Internet. Students explore an array of software suites which covers communications, word processing, spreadsheets, idea-mapping, presentation, multimedia, and introductory programming. In addition to formal class time, students may access the information technology resources in our two Media Centers and the Middle and Upper School Library during study hall, recess, before and after school. Our study of media literacy provides a framework to access, analyze, evaluate and create media messages in a variety of forms. Here we work to develop an understanding of the role of media in society, as consumers and creators, as well as essential skills of inquiry and self-expression.
