Gator Plus Challenge 7: Computers and Technology

(Full Year)

Gator Plus Challenge Option is designed to appeal to independent ‘workers’ who seek knowledge, skill and enrichment beyond regular classroom work specifically in the area of computer technology. Students will work in a computer lab environment synthesizing and editing information for use in a variety of software programs. Students will work independently and in small groups on a variety of projects. Some projects include Microsoft PowerPoint and Excel, Flash animation as well as web based animation programs (Go Animate for Education), Comic Life, Garage Band and Webpage design software. As well, students will be immersed in movie editing while creating a promotional movie for incoming Gr.6 students and their parents to view. Students will use digital cameras and video cameras in many of their projects. For students who are keen on enhancing their knowledge and skills in existing and new software programs, this option is for you.
