Hour of Code

We live in a world surrounded by technology. And we know that whatever field our students choose to go into as adults, their ability to succeed will increasingly hinge on understanding how technology works. hour-of-code-logoBut only a tiny fraction of us are learning computer science, and less students are studying it than a decade ago.

That’s why our entire school is joining in on the largest learning event in history: The Hour of Code, during Computer Science Education Week (Dec. 7-13). More than 100 million students worldwide have already tried an Hour of Code. Our Hour of Code is a statement that Telluride Intermediate School is ready to teach these foundational 21st century skills.

iPad Cart Captains

TIS Faculty,

Tech Crew met again today. We finalized who is assigned to each cart. Their task is different this year. They do not report missing iPads. They are to care for the cart and teach others how to do so. To that end they are working on a video to share that teaches others how to remove and return iPads without damaging the cords. Also, every cart should have this poster inserted to the inside of the cart. (attached) Let me know if you are still missing one. cow

iPad Cart Captains, “Make it so.”

If you are missing an iPad and can not find it, please let me know. We are no longer reporting missing iPads through the google form.
