COMPUTER TECHNOLOGY 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:
  • Photoshop
  • Premiere (video editing)
  • After Effects (video effects)
  • Blender (3D modeling)
  • Programming (basic structures like if statements, loops, variable, arrays)
 
 
ELECTRONICS & ROBOTICS 10
 
This course will offer the opportunity to learn about robots and robotics.
 
The course will teach:
  • Basics of how electronics work, including circuit construction
  • Block-based and/or logic-based coding
  • Sensor use
  • Relationships of power and motion
  • How robotics are used in industry
 
Students will participate in robotics challenges as part of their learning.
 
 
ROBOTICS 11
 
This course will offer the opportunity to learn about robots and robotics.
 
The course will teach:
  • Basics of how electronics work, including circuit construction
  • Block-based and/or logic-based coding
  • Sensor use
  • Relationships of power and motion
  • How robotics are used in industry
 
Students will participate in robotics challenges as part of their learning. Grade 11 students will begin using sensor packages and do more programming of the robots to do tasks automatically.  
 
MEDIA ARTS 9-10
 
This course will offer students the opportunity to learn skills in digital media.
 
Students will learn:
  • Graphic Design
      • Photoshop - Learn to edit, combine and improve photos using the premier photo editing software
  • Video Editing
      • Premiere - Learn to cut and splice projects and do basic video editing
      • After Effects - Learn to add visual effects to videos
  • 3D Modelling/Printing and Animation
      • Blender - Work on static modelling with the opportunity to print final projects on a 3D printer
      • Blender - Basic rigging and animation
 
Students start by working through the basics of each type of Media Art; when they are ready, they move on to choose projects which interest them.
