Now that you've had the laptops and have been able to use them, I'd like this week's blog post to be a thank you letter to Uncle Toyo and the Murayama Ohana for their extremely generous donation to purchase those MacBook Pros for all of you. Be sure to explain in your letter how having your own laptop to use, will greatly benefit you and your work this year. If you were here last year, you can compare how it was with having to share and do lottery drawings each quarter to see who was lucky enough to be able to use our few laptops. You can also talk about the new version of Final Cut Pro that we are all able to move into. Think of all the ways you can use this new laptop to help you with your work and be sure to explain them so that he and his ohana can understand what a difference this is making in our class this year. I'm sure they would all love to hear about how their donation has and will help you in our class.
I currently teach Advanced Media Production, Beginning Media Production, the Yearbook Class, two Intro to Computing - iPad Classes, and I am also the school's technology coordinator. You can say I wear many hats here at CKMS!
