We have created a project-based curriculum that will push students to become creative, free thinkers who can use 21st century technology tools to get information and communicate. This course will cover three main units, including: internet safety, classic programs, and some of the most current online technology tools available.

All assignments will be submitted through Schoology. Our onsite and online courses will have hard deadlines for each of the projects to ensure that students are making adequate progress.  All summer classes are self-paced, and students can submit assignments as soon as they have them completed. Teachers will grade assignments as quickly as possible and provide a grade/feedback. Late assignments will not be accepted. Students will need to keep track of their grades and read the teacher feedback provided to correct any missing parts in order to receive full credit for the course.
