We learned a lot of new skills in Technology class this year.
In this project, we learned how to use Movie Maker and Photo Story 3. We learned how to go on Google Earth and travel to faraway places while staying in our classroom. We learned how to take screenshots and use them in our presentations. We learned how to make music on UJAM.com and Photo Story 3. We recorded our voices and learned how to put it in our movie.
We also learned how to type in step by step directions for you! Enjoy our tutorial of how to travel on Google Earth.
. We were learning about ways to use the app,Snapguide, to create a tutorial. Our idea was to show people how to use a digital camera. This tutorial will show you step by step basics of using a digital camera. We used the iPad to take pictures of each step. Next, we added captions to match the steps. We hope our tutorial will help people learn how to use a digital camera in the future.
These students have been fundraising and collecting books to send to children in Africa that do not have books. We don’t always think of how incredible it is to be able to get any book we want. This is a wonderful opportunity to be grateful and help make a difference in other children’s lives.

Mrs. Moore went to an awesome education conference this past weekend called, EdCamp Detroit. It was full of amazing Michigan educators who love helping students learn! We had many great conversations and shared a whole bunch of cool ideas. When I told Mr. Medvinsky we were creating How-To videos, he shared a cool app with me called,SnapGuide. Guess what? I loved it and couldn’t wait to share it in class!
We jumped right in and made our first guide. Take a look at what our 1st graders created. Each photo is captioned and there are even videos at the end.
In celebration of Earth Day this past April 22nd, we made our third annual Paperless Earth Day books.

Take a peek at some ways we take care of the Earth.
If you give the Techie Kids inspiration, chances are they’ll create something amazing! That’s just what we’ve been doing. Inspired by Laura Numeroff’s If You Give A Mouse A Cookie series, we decided to create our own version.
This story is a collaboration between our Kindergarten, First, Second, and Third grade classes.
Here is our First Edition Publication of,
IF YOU GIVE A MONKEY A PINEAPPLE
Have you ever written a book before?
If you were to create another book in this series, what would it be called?
We have all been working very hard in our Technology classes. One of our focuses have been the digital cameras. We have talked about the parts of the camera and its proper care. The children are working on focusing and quality photo composition. This is a project that our third graders are working on now. Play our game to find out how we are learning to see everyday objects from a new perspective.
