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:


  1. Empowered Learner
  2. Digital Citizen
  3. Knowledge Constructor
  4. Innovative Designer
  5. Computational Thinker
  6. Creative Communicator
  7. 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!


Sincerely,


Jessica Thomas, M.Ed., Ed.S.
