Course Description:Introduction to PLTW is a brand new course being offered to 6th grade students exclusively here at TLC. In growing the program out of a 6-8 combination, this course aims to prepare our middle school students for technology use in the classroom and life. Encouraging best practices, internet safety, proper search techniques and digital citizenship, students will begin developing creatively on the web using various applications and programs. Furthermore, students will be introduced to PLTW as a Science Technology Engineering and Math (STEM) course. Assignments will come in the form of computer based projects, activities and learning challenges designed to provoke excitement, increase enthusiasm and inspire STEM based learning.
