Welcome to Mrs. Segiet's Creative Tech and Project Lead the Way webpage. 

This is a fun and exciting time for technology at Churchville and the other district middle schools as we enter year 4 of our 1:1 initiative.  The Computer Literacy curriculum has been updated so we changed our name to match what the students are learning. We will now be named Creative Technology across the three middle schools. We have added more Stem practices in our 6th - 8th grade curriculum this year.  These include opportunities to build computers along with expanding our coding curriculum to include line coding languages such as Python and HTML.  Out 8th grade classes are also a semester long.  I am honored and excited to take this journey with the students in the Creative Technology classes.  Linking technology with real world examples will teach students skills such as creativity and innovation, collaboration, digital communication, critical thinking, problem solving and decision making allowing them to become model digital citizens and ready for their futures!

I also have had the great opportunity to teach Project Lead the Way - APP Creators to 7th and 8th graders.  App Creators introduces students to the field of computer science and the concepts of computational thinking, through the creation of mobile apps. Students are challenged to be creative and innovative, as they collaboratively design and develop mobile solutions to engaging, authentic problems. Students experience the positive impact of the application of computer science to society as well as other disciplines, particularly biomedical science.
The unit provides students opportunities for self-expression. Teams identify a personal or community problem of interest to them that can be solved with a mobile app solution. The problem can address issues such as health and wellness, the environment, school culture, emergency preparedness, education, community service—the options are endless!
