COMPUTER STUDIES 8
Students are introduced to computer basics. This includes both software and hardware systems. This is a good course for students wanting to take Information Technology 9/10.
INFORMATION TECHNOLOGY 9
This is a course which will start by giving student basic instruction in Media Arts and Programming. The objective of the course is familiarization with the concepts while giving the students as much license to be creative as possible. Students will work on the following:
- Premiere (video editing)
- After Effects (video effects)
- Blender (3D modeling)
- Programming (basic structures like if statements, loops, variable, arrays)
INFORMATION TECHNOLOGY (MINT 10)
This is a course which will start by giving students basic instruction in Computer Programming and 2d Media Arts. After basic instruction in each, students will choose which path they wish to pursue further, develop a plan for a major project and work to complete that project.
- Computer Programming
- This teaches the esentials of programming with if statements, loops, recursion, and object-oriented programming. Databases and the SQL language to access them will also be introduced.
- 2D Media Arts
- Photoshop - Learn to edit, combine, and improve photos using the premier photo editing software
- Video Editing
- Animation - Learn to make graphics move. Could be combined with programming in many interesting ways
- 3D Media Arts
- Work with Blender on static modelling with the opportunity to print final projects on a 3D Printer
TECHNOLOGY EDUCATION 10 - DRAFTING AND DESIGN (TED 10)
This is one of the fastest growing programs in technology education in B.C. It is an excellent course for both males and females. CAD is used in a wide variety of occupations including dress designers, fire departments, the forest industry, construction, as well as traditional uses in shops. You will learn the method of drafting most professional use now. The material covered in the course includes drawing such objects as machine parts, house plans, and furniture on computers.
The course teaches you the fundamentals of 2 dimensional drafting through a series of 10 modules using Autocad. When the modules are completed you can choose to explore your own area of study from topics such as 3-D drafting, 3-D modeling and animation, and CNC router operation.
INFORMATION & COMMUNICATIONS TECHNOLOGY 11: Computer Programming (MICTP 11)
This course is an introduction to the theory and practice of computer programming. Topics will include programming structures, objects and classes, inheritance, and some of the basic ideas central to software development. As students become more advanced, they will be required to develop, in consultation with the teacher, a major programming project, and then implement it. Past projects have often included replicas of old Atari 2600 era games though the students are allowed to choose their direction.
Students taking this course must be self-starting and able to problem solve without constant assistance.
INFORMATION & COMMUNICATIONS TECHNOLOGY 12: Computer Programming 12 (MICPT 12)
Prerequisite: MICTP 11
Information Technology 12 further develops the programming skills learned in MICTP 12.
INFORMATION & COMPUTER TECHNOLOGIES MEDIA 11
This course will offer the opportunity to learn a variety of skills around digital media. Students will learn:
- Graphic Design
- 2D Animation
- 3D Animation
- Advanced Video Editing and Production
- 3D Modelling and Printing
The class will be structured with instruction and assigned projects early in the semester and independent projects with a lot of student choice later in the semester. Students MUST be self-starting and able to work without constant prompting.
INFORMATION & COMPUTER TECHNOLOGIES MEDIA 12
This cours expands on the concepts and skills from the grade 11 course.
DRAFTING AND DESIGN 11 (DD11)
Computer Assisted Aided Drawing (CAD) is one of the fastest growing programs in education technology in B.C. It is an excellent course for both males and females. Computer Assisted (aided) Drawing is used in a wide variety of occupations including dress designers, fire departments, the forest industry, construction, as well as traditional uses in shops. Students will learn the method of drafting most professionals use now. The material covered in the coures includes drawing such objects as machine parts, house plans, and furniture on computers. Students will have the opportunity to work on areas of special interest including but not limited to, GIS (Geographical Information Systems), 3D modelling and animation, CNC router operation, jewellery design, and house design.
The grade 11 course teaches the fundamentals of 2 dimensional drafting through a series of 10 modules using Autocad. When the modules are completed you can choose your own area of study from the list above.
DRAFTING AND DESIGN 12 (DD 12)
Prerequisite: Drafting and Design 11
In Drafting and Design 12 course you will build on your expertise in Autocad by creating three-dimensional models. When the modules are complete you can continue to develop and apply your skills using one of the additional software packages.
