Mrs. Thomas Technology Portal
Dear Students, Parents and Guardians,
Welcome to Mrs. Jessica Thomas’ Technology Class! This year as your technology teacher, I am excited about introducing them to a year of interdisciplinary experiences that allows for technology to take center stage! We will be putting a greater emphasis in integrating the PA Common Core in Technology in addition to still being managed by the following International Society for Technology Education or ISTE Standards:
- Empowered Learner
- Digital Citizen
- Knowledge Constructor
- Innovative Designer
- Computational Thinker
- Creative Communicator
- Global Collaborator
All of this will be done by making students stronger Digital Citizens through a strong focus on Digital Literacy enhancement, making them aware of their Digital Footprint and engaging in strategic Digital Communication. Such activities are intended to provide students with a well-rounded and high quality educational experience which is aligned with the New Foundation Charter School’s mission.
I welcome you to reach out to me throughout the year to share any concerns or interests related to this class as we work together to prepare your child to be a contributing global and digital citizen in today's society. Once again thank you for the privilege and responsibility to serve as your child's Technology Teacher for another year, and I look forward to meeting you in the near future!
