Media Literacy

This year, we are excited to offer a brand new course for grade 7 and 8 students covering computer skills and technological studies. Twice a week, students will have a 40-minute period where they will learn new, and cement current, skills involving different aspects of computer use and technology to help prepare them for high school. Topics covered will include:

  • Preparing presentations and research projects using Microsoft Word and PowerPoint.
  • Giving exciting presentations using Prezi.
  • Organizing and displaying collected data using Microsoft Excel.
  • Preparing and displaying information in brochures and flyers using Microsoft Publisher.
  • Using email, search engines, and websites safely for school.
  • Creating websites.
  • Collecting research online for research projects and citing information.
  • Editing photos and videos.
  • Creating basic video games.
