Part 2: Technology Task
In the fall, AHS is integrating technology that will support and enhance your learning. You will receive an iPad Pro iOS 10.3. Our everyday experiences in the classroom are shifting and will begin to look very different from our traditional modes of learning. The possibilities are endless! With this in mind, I want you to take ownership of our technology implementation and offer your suggestions for resources that should be made available to you, your peers, and the teachers at AHS.

For Part 2 of your summer assignment, you will complete the Technology Task (found in the Summer 2017 Assignment). Your objective is to identify 5 apps that will enhance student learning on the iPad Pro. The Technology Task: Part 2 may be completed on your own paper or you may copy and paste additional lines, as needed.

Part 3: Research

Complete the Research Information handout included in the summer assignment packet. Your objective is to:

  • Identify 5 sources of information on the topic of Technological Unemployment
  • Provide citation information for 5 sources on the topic
  • Select and print 2 of the sources that offer differing perspectives
  • Annotate the selected texts (If the source is a speech or lecture, you may annotate a transcript)

You will find information about proper annotation on the last page of the assignment packet.
