Brunswick Junior High School Disclaimer
Information-Technology Skills Site
This evolving website was developed by the Brunswick Junior High School Media Team to assist educators and students in further developing their information-technology skills. Due to the nature of “information-technology” as constantly changing, users are invited to submit suggestions for inclusion on this site.
The site contains four sections which are listed and identified by title below. Each section is further identified by art work produced by former students of Brunswick Junior High School. This art work is the result of a competition in which students were asked to submit designs to represent “information-technology”. Permission was grated to use this art work on this site, but no permission exists to copy or use these logos elsewhere.
District Issues: Programs and Policies pertaining to the Brunswick School Department.
Electronic Research: Includes the use of terms, project preparation, search strategy development, electronic searching, content evaluation, plagiarism, copyright, and citation requirements.
Hardware: Includes terms and skills associated with various audio-visual hardware including computers.
Software: Includes basic skills and coverage of the Brunswick School District and MLTI Laptop Program software.
The skills included in the above sections were obtained from personal knowledge, research, and the collection and analysis of data obtained from surveys administered to district staff and students. These skills are also very consistent with the information-technology benchmarks identified by Brunswick School Department District Technology Committee Members. The listed skills are intentionally broad in scope, ranging from simple to complex, in order to accommodate a wide range of ability levels.
