Welcome to Technology class at St. Joseph Catholic School. My name is Miss Freund and this is my fifth year of teaching Technology at St. Joseph Catholic School.
Throughout the year, we will be working on a variety of skills to prepare students to be successful in using Technology across the curriculum. Two of these areas include:
v Working on keyboarding skills to meet the diocesan standards in grades 4-8
v Learning to use Microsoft Office and other applications
Students will also participate in the Project Lead the Way (PLTW) program. PLTW is a nation-wide STEM (science, technology, engineering, and mathematics) program for students in grades K-12. The program teaches students to solve problems using the design process and introduces them to careers in engineering fields. At St. Joseph Catholic School, students in grades K-5 participate in modules from the Launch program and our middle school students participate in the Gateway to Technology program.
