Fifth graders in Mrs. Helfrich’s class learned that October was National Principals Month and decided to surprise Mrs. Samide by creating a project to showcase leadership at Harry S. Truman Elementary School. Fifth graders made an iMovie after interviewing students and staff with the question, “What does leadership mean to you?”
Now that the first marking period is complete, all high school and middle school parents are invited to share their thoughts through a survey on access to technology for learning. Your responses are completely anonymous and will help make the TL2014 initiative the best it can be. Thank you for taking a few minutes to participate. This survey will close on Friday, November 22.
Results from previous surveys are available above under the Assessment/Evaluation tab. The results from this survey will be shared with the school board, teachers, students and the public in late January 2014.
Similar surveys will be administered to students and teachers beginning Monday, November 11.
This year’s cross-grade level group of Digital Aces at Salisbury Middle School met for the first time during an October morning session to get to know each other and collaborate on creating iMovie video clips to share with students and teachers. One of the main goals of Digital Aces is to raise capacity of all digital learners at Salisbury Middle School by determining the best digital tools to use for various tasks and then critically examining the best way to use them. This school year they will also focus on sharing their results effectively via online platforms.
Students were selected after advisors Mr. David Beyer, Sixth Grade Teacher, and Mrs. Barbara Jaindl, Library Media Teacher, collected applications from students who demonstrated independence and initiative by responding to an invite to be considered by completing a survey about their digital tools use.
Here are some tips created by small teams of Digital Aces to help others consider how best to use green screen effectively.
