Library, Media and Instructional Technology

Achieving success requires well-developed 21st century skills which is why we strive to enhance each discipline’s curriculum with a purposeful use of technology. Technology is integrated into classroom activities on a daily basis in creative and innovative ways. This allows faculty the opportunity to differentiate instruction, using technology as a tool in the process. We are intentional about using technology as a means to improve collaboration, critical thinking, creativity and communication for all students.

Technology Courses

Students in this 9-week class will explore the key concepts in computer programming, applying them to code animations, games, music, interactive graphics or simulations.  With access to a range of web-based tools, students will enjoy a variety of options for investigation, including Java, SCRATCH, CSS, Python and Processing. Students will create projects that reflect their own interests in an environment that encourages “tinkering” and experimentation.

Digital Literacy is a required online course for freshmen and transfer students.  Students learn skills that will be applied both in high school and other academic settings.  Topics explored are technology literacy, information literacy and digital citizenship.

Students will study the basics for designing, creating, producing, and editing short films using video editing software.  They will learn to use a camera, incorporate still images, sound, titling and special effects to effectively tell a story.  Students should have some experience with a graphic editing program, music editing program or video editing program before taking this class.  Open to sophomores, juniors and seniors.
