Technology use and instruction is integrated throughout the Middle School curriculum. In addition, the sixth grade Technology Class educates students on both hard and soft technology skills. Students learn the skills necessary to succeed in Penn Charter’s 1:1 laptop program include; typing, Google Apps and researching online. Project-based learning with coding tools, multimedia presentation programs such as GoAnimate, Prezi and iMovie are also a class focus. Along with these “hard skills” the students will look at the social, emotional and ethical choices they make everyday while balancing their digital and off-line lives.
