Objectives
Students will be able to keep a precise record of their work that can be used in conjunction with test results found on ECLAS and The Princeton Review.

Materials Used
Scanners, Macromedia software, Net2FTP, and the Encarta encyclopedia.

Standards Addressed
This project is aligned with the ISTE NETS technology standards for students (http://iste.org).

Assessment

Students Involved
Skills needed are basic technology skills. Students learn clever ways to take their academic responsibilties and meld it with their own imaginations.

Teacher Tips
Teachers can simply register their own domain and have full control of the Internet traffic, as well as being able to access it anywhere with an Internet connection.

Overall Value
Students participating in this unit can not only learn special technology skills, but are also able to showcase their work for others to review.

Michael Klein

Michael Klein graduated from the School of Visual Arts in 1995, and soon afterward began work as an assistant animator where he learned how well a production staff can function to achieve a common goal. This valuable experience defines his approach to teaching. Fostering budding talent amongst a diverse population of students has resulted in a truly rewarding experience. In 1998, he became involved with teaching Technology to students as young as Pre-Kindergarten and as mature as the Ninth Grade. Michael integrates technology to fit the needs of the common branch teachers and provides them with a new approach suited to individual teaching and learning styles.
