Welcome to Technology!
My name is Ms. Brown and I'm the Elementary Technology Teacher at American Academy, Motsenbocker Campus. I am so excited to be teaching Technology this year! I truly love what I do! My goal is to set-up our students for success by giving them a well-rounded education in technology. Most of my class is centered on skill building followed by project-based learning and I strive to make my content engaging, relevant and fun!
In each grade they will learn tech skills that build on what they learned from the previous year, so that when they leave me in 5th grade they will be very proficient in a myriad of technology skills.
Students will learn skills in keyboarding, word processing, digital citizenship, cyber safety, presentation software, graphics, coding, web navigation, file management and much more.
We are excited to let you know that, in the Tech department, we will be using Minecraft EDU (the educational version of Minecraft) in class for mini-lessons from time to time throughout the remainder of this year. This is a fun way for students to learn collaboration and problem-solving skills in a safe, controlled environment. Students will work with their classmates in a virtual space to create and learn together in the amazing world of Minecraft! We look forward to what they build!
