It has been a while since we have made a blog post. With christmas break over and the new year beginning we wanted to talk about new things that have been going on. As you know, we both teach business and computer/technology classes. With teaching these subjects many teachers know that technology changes constantly. There seems to be constant new updates on software, devices, websites, etc. which can be overwhelming to most people. We try our best to stay up to date with the newest resources that can be used in our own classrooms and our fellow teacher's classrooms. Over the past 8 months we have added a lot of new websites, technology devices, etc. to our pages for you to try out in your classrooms. We also have created many more lesson plans, assignments, projects, and semester courses! Continue reading to check out some of our newest resources that we would like to share with you all!
Some of our New Resources:
I, Samantha, have been teaching Game Design for the last 2 years to Juniors and Seniors. It was going well but I have been searching for some different and more up to date curriculum in use in my classroom. The main issue was everything was so expensive. However, I am happy to share that after a couple years of searching I have found an amazing new website with a great Game Design course. The website is www.codehs.com The free version of this course has everything I need, but you can pay to get more features, but I personally am satisfied with the free version. You don't have to download any software, as it is web-based and my students are loving it! Check out this site for yourself, as there are many other courses offered on this site.
Note: this is just one of the new websites we have added to our 6-12 websites page, so go take the time to check out all the other websites we have added on our pages.
