A weekly technology club for grades 3-6 on Tuesday lunch times, TECHCLUB allows students to work freely on their tech projects with the guidance of Teachers, Techsperts and other students. Integrated into the Victorian Curriculum's Digital Technology Curriculum, the TECHCLUB provides opportunities for students to gain confidence in areas of technology previously unknown.

Today we looked at a Google extension called Screencastify. It lets you video your desktop so you can show other people how you achieved different things on the Chromebook. To the left there is an example from Freddie, where he shows us how to change the Desktop Background on his Chromebook.
Our Art room is generating into a S.TE.A.M. room - I know this sounds a little European, but it actually stands for Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts and Maths. The combination of these areas forms a problem solving creative environment for us to investigate and innovate. If you have a special project you want to pursue or even just was to experiment with electrical circuits, art materials or technology like robotics, then the STEAM room is your 1st port of call.
TechClub Tuesday 15.5.17
This week TechClub was back after a week off because of NAPLAN testing in Grade 3 & 5. The focus this week was helping our new users in grade 3 to navigate their way through the success criteria for the Google Badges so they can achieve their P Plates by the end of term.
It was great to see the TechSperts helping the younger members of the school achieve their googly goals. Check out the Badge Board on the Chromehub to see the up to date achievements of students from 3-6.
