OPA is fortunate that we are a GAFE (Google Apps for Education) School. This comes with many benefits for our students and teachers. In Computer Tech, I am making sure that students understand the basics in many of these Google Apps before we continue on to group and collaborative work that will involve Google's Applied Digital Skills program, Hour of Code, and our very own Donor's Choose Project featuring Raspberry Pi. Additonally, my class will apply the coding skills to sponsor some the Aguilas Activities at OPA that feature Sphero robots!! Check back soon for some awesome updates and photos!!

For a detailed look at day-to-day lessons and updates, visit your student's Google Classroom.

Many aspects of life become better when teamwork is involved. This is why I often use collaboration with my students.
