Greetings!

 

The Nebo Fine Arts ASP Technology Program meets in several sessions during the week:


1. ASP Broadcast and Technology Club: Meets on Thursdays and Fridays during ASP from 3:00 PM to 5:00 PM.  This group is open to 4th and 5th Grade students.


Students in ASP Technology will learn how to create games, simulations, and animations using programming software such as Scratch, Alice, and Python.  In addition students in ASP Technology will work with HTML editors to create and publish web pages.  Technology students will also work with building and programming Lego Mindstorms NXT robots.   This club is open to 4th or 5th grade students.  Mr. Michaud will assign students to Thursday or Friday depending upon experience. 


Students in Broadcast and Technology club will learn how to set up and operate video and sound equipment in the Nebo Television Studio.  In addition, students will learn how to give news broadcasts on Nebo Network News during the morning announcements.  Students will learn to use Microsoft Office and OpenOffice to create and communicate through digital media.  Students will learn the basic elements of graphic design and produce animated films, create web pages, and create other digital media. 


In Broadcast and Technology Club we will also learn the basics of computer programming with the Scratch, Alice, and Python programming languages.  Students will create basic video games, simulations, and other basic programs.

 

The ultimate goal of the both the Technology and the Broadcast Club is for students to be fluent in using digital media to create and communicate with others. 

 

Because the ASP Technology and Broadcast Club are part of Nebo ASP, students must stay in ASP on the days they have Broadcast or Technology Club.  Parents must inform homeroom teachers on that students need to go to ASP.  Parents must also follow Nebo ASP procedures and pick up students in the front lobby of Nebo.  ASP currently charges $6.00 per day.  Nebo ASP policies for further information on cost.

 Students wanting to be in ASP Technology or Broadcast Club must fill out and return this form to Mr. Michaud.

If you have any questions please email Mr. Michaud at cmichaud@paulding.k12.ga.us or call at (770) 443-8777.
