Tech Ed - Looking to the Future

           tech ed The Tech Ed class at LMS focuses on how technology is used in various industries.  To accomplish this learning, students use computer-based instruction along with hands-on experiences to learn the subject matter.  Within this setting, students are applying science concepts and using their math skills to answer questions and advance their learning. 

            One of the interesting components of the student learning is a section in each module about careers.  While we realize that 6th, 7th and 8th graders are not ready to start a job tomorrow, it does help them realize there are many careers available in a wide variety of industries.  Students take a short quiz based on their interests within the specific industry and then the computer selects a career possibility within the subject they are studying.
