The 2018-19 school year was our first year of ipads at Lexington Middle School. Students not only experienced a lighter load in their backpacks (compared to hauling macbooks in the past) but a wide range of tools to demonstrate learning in the classroom.

With a quarter crowded with testing, field trips, and track, collaborating on a news program was a challenge in eighth grade. However, this group of students upped their game in creating news stories by editing interviews, inserting video and images to support storyline and narrating through the use of voice over.

Seventh grade students explored possibilities with augmented reality through an app called AR Makr. Students used images from Keynote to create a 3-dimensional image of the water cycle. We have only just started with the possibilities of this application!

Sixth graders worked to improve their speed and accuracy in keyboarding. They also took a turn at creating a Super Hero movie trailer using the “magic” of green screen and iMovie.
