Media Literacy Introduction & Week of August 27, 2012

Technology Lab is a little off skew this week! There are B.O.Y. (Beginning of Year) assessment requirements for CPS that must be met.  This week 1st, 4th, and 7th grade classrooms took the REACH  Beginning of Year Performance Task Assessments.  These paper and pencil tests were given to one classroom in each of the above grades to gauge their technology knowledge to date.

Other classrooms had lab time interrupted to complete their NWEA M.A.P. (measures of academic progress) assessments.  With that in mind, Kindergarten-2nd grade students will practice mouse skills after testing this week in lab via ABCYA.com.

3rd-8th Grades
Students that didn't have disrupted lab time this week began looking at Media Literacy.  Media literacy is something that every 21st century student needs.  This week is just a brief introduction to the concept.  The follow websites acted as reference for my presentation:
