My name is Kathy Bouman and known around campus as Ms. Kathy. I am thrilled and honored to work in our Media Lab. The students are a joy to work with and complete sponges, especially when it comes to learning new technology skills. Our communication themes here at Benchley-Weinberger include many facets of media. We are forever grateful for B-W’s awesome Foundation and PTA who support our lab. A very special thank you to the Foundation, we love our laptops! Listed below are just some of the areas of technology we work on in our lab:

  • Primary grades use various educational sites to augment areas of literacy (letter sounds, sight words and sentence structure) and Math
  • Keyboarding skills
  • Microsoft Office (PowerPoint, Word, Excel)
  • Photography
  • Videography
    • camera technique, filming, and editing
  • Digital Storytelling
  • Technology vocabulary
  • Google research
  • Coding

Students will use technology skills to enhance learning and productivity at their grade level and to promote creativity in all areas of their lives.
