What is Exploratory?
Exploratory classes are meant to give you an opportunity to learn in different ways than those of a regular class. In most cases your class work will be done on a computer, in class, so there will be almost no homework. Success will be based on your ability to learn skills, complete class work, and participate in group learning.

What will I learn?
In this class, students are given the chance to improve on computer skills, learn and use programs such as Word, Excel, PowerPoint, Movie Maker, and learn to use a variety of media equipment, such as digital cameras, microphones, and video cams. Learning is project-based to provide students with meaningful learning that they can use. Seventh graders concentrate on computer skills and use of basic programs for media and application to academic classes. Eighth graders use media programs to produce projects with cameras, sound, and digital manipulation.
