Digital Learning / Media Arts
Digital Learning/Media Arts Instructor: Carlos Velado
1x weekly, TK/Kinder - 5, all year
The expectations of the Common Core State Standards include the full integration of technology into all standards. Technology is used to both learn and show what has been learned. Canyon Charter has invested in the future of our children by providing Chromebooks (1-1) in all K - 5th grade classrooms. All grades receive in-class computer instruction as well as the use of software programs that complement the teaching curriculum by grade level.
Mr. Velado's instruction focuses on research skills, presentation skills, movie making, graphic arts, Google docs, and learning essential typing skills.
Our Canyon teachers participate in a variety of professional development courses designed to support the integration of technology into their classroom instruction.

Each teacher uses these resources differently, some assign for homework, others make it optional. Parents can speak to their child's teacher to find out more information about their child's class.
