Summer Tech Camp
SBAC Testing starts in 3rd grade and it is a computer-based test. Knowing the answers to the test questions is no longer enough. Typing quickly and mastering technology will now play a major factor in how well your child scores on state testing and school projects. A child needs to be able to input and compose answers using various forms of technology such as iPads, Chromebooks, Desktop Computers, and more before he or she reaches junior high!
This is where Mrs. Chang’s Summer Tech Camp can help your child! Perfecting the touch-typing technique will increase a child’s confidence during class projects and computer-based tests. Gaining an understanding of how to seamlessly move between various forms of technology will help him or her navigate future technology with ease.
On April 16, 2016, Time Magazine published an article on how important being creative with technology and social media is on the "NEW College Application".
