We are celebrating Computer Science in Education week(s) December 9-19th by participating in Hour of Code activities! Teachers and Staff- for each activity you participate in- and post to Twitter or text/email to me- you will earn a chance for a necklace or earring set from Kendra Scott! Here's the link!
Don't forget to visit the Tech Tidbits page of this site to get links to the animated video series "Think Like a Coder!" There are 4 episodes released so far, each about 6 minutes long, and are great for 5-6th grade students to solve problems and follow the story line! More episodes to come!
The students and teachers worked consistently last year to improve their digital literacy! We were able to earn recognition from the leading advocacy and information source, Common Sense Media.
Read more about what we did here to earn this award, and follow Collins Intermediate on Twitter to keep up to date with our school's activities!
Sharing is Caring- Together We're Better!
I'm looking forward to growing our learning community at Collins, and putting into practice the best ways to use technology as a creativity and communication tool!
This is an all-in-one site to help parents, teachers, and students use technology wisely. It has movie, t.v., and gaming reviews, as well as great advice on how to manage the digital life of your family. It has resources for talking about digital responsibilities and safety that are great for families and for teachers to use with their classes.
