Welcome to Ms. C's Middle School Information Technology wiki!

On this wikispace you will find information about our middle school IT exploratory classes, as well as our middle school IT integration projects. For more news about middle school IT here at school, check out the Middle School IT blog.

Process
Our projects are structured according to the technology design cycle: Investigate, Plan, Create and Evaluate, which is the natural process that students go through when completing a technology project. This gives students multiple opportunities for formative assessment and feedback during the development of a project. Students are encouraged to learn how to learn with technology, to be independent and critical thinkers and to work cooperatively within the classroom environment.

Standards
Ms. C's classes use the International Society for Technology in Education National Education Technology Standards for Students (NETS*S):
"The ISTE National Educational Technology Standards for Students (NETS*S) identifies six major standards and related performance indicators, detailing what students should know about and be able to do with technology to support their learning, communications, research, problem-solving, and productivity." From: National Educational Technology Standards Overview.

You will find resources for all Ms. C's IT classes here:

We will also use this space to share what we have learned during the quarter - this will become a collaborative learning environment for everyone in middle school IT!
