Elementary Students Participate in the Hour of Code
Many students across our district finished off their 2013 school year with a fun and new experience....computer programming through the "Hour of Code". Two of our schools, Leaphart and Oak Pointe, had school wide participation, and countless other classes learned basic technology systems and operations by using critical thinking, collaboration and perseverance! It is still not too late to try this fun activity- code.org still has all the activities available for you to use with your students. Just click and go!

CES Learns a New Way to Green Screen using the iPad!
You know what a "green screen" effect is, right? It's used in the movies to make it look like the actors have landed on an alien planet, and it's used on TV to make it look like your local news announcer is standing in front of an animated weather map. The green screen effect works by combining images from multiple sources into a single video. These images can come from photos or videos in your camera roll, or from the live video camera.
First grade students in Mrs. Wertz's visited Germany using the iPad app- Green Screen by Do Ink. Green Screen by Do Ink makes it easy to create incredible green screen videos right on your iPad. This app emphasizes ease-of-use and simplicity while still enabling you to get fantastic results. With Green Screen by Do Ink, you can tell a story, explain an idea, and express yourself in truly creative and unique ways.
