    PROJECTS IN TECHNOLOGY

     

    During the course of the school year, we will be exploring a variety of technologies and programs.  I try to select software that is the “industry standard” or uses the same types of tools and/or techniques.  I also attempt to target different areas of interest (Office applications, graphics, 3D, video editing, etc…) We will also be performing several STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering & Math) units.
