7th Grade Tech Class

Tech class has shifted to a workshop “flipped classroom” model with an even greater emphasis on classroom-supported individual working time.  Learn more about your choices here and check out the slides from our first class explaining how tech class works.  Coronavirus exception:  all students will work on coding in Scratch.


Success in tech class requires you to use your resources wisely when you are stuck or need to know what to try next.  Primary resources are this website and its accompanying videos, the Scratch website, Scratch tutorials, projects in our classroom’s Example Studio, your fellow students, and finally Mr. James, who is available during class, by email, and after school by appointment.
