At Woodstock Union Middle School we have a required 9 week course for 7th graders (Computer Skills I) and a 9 week required 8th grade course (Computer Skills II) that focuses on searching and researching as well as using productivity software (presentation, spreadsheets, collaboration (Google Docs)) and blogging (21classes.com). It's always evolving but the focus primarily stays consistent.
In the HS, we have a 1 credit technology graduation requirement but students can satisfy that in many ways....programming, web design, animation, graphic arts.

I am interested in finding out just how many of you have Information Technology -- using WORD, EXCEL, POWER POINT, net searches, integrated technology, etc. -- as a graduation requirement at your schools.
Currently, at Windsor HS, it is not a graduation requirement, but I am highly interested in your thoughts on same, and on who has IT as a requirement.
Have an up tick day!!!!!
