January 2017 update


December was a fun month for B-W students in the Media Lab! We explored lots of coding using the Hour of Code website. Our 5th graders explored the Kahn Academy website and created snowmen using  Javascript. Our younger students had fun with Puppy Adventure through the Tynker website. Many Media Lab visitors coded with Moana, Minecraft, and StarWars using “block” style coding found on the Hour of Code website.

This month all kinders created snowmen and all first graders created snowflakes on their laptops.  We were able to print our work  using our new printer from the Foundation. Thank you Benchley Foundation and PTA for supporting our lab!

Our 2nd graders are currently working on their “Wish for the World” using Microsoft Word. Third graders are working on a document about gray whales to help them become more familiar with Word tools and to learn about whales as their whale watching trip will be here soon!

B-W’s 4th graders have  learned how to edit using iMovie.  They are developing  stories/storyboarding  with their classroom teachers in order to  create videos for iVIE (Innovative Video in Education) entries.
