Alpha Academy’s 2nd Grade classes were the first to experience an introduction to a student STEM presentation. “Yes, That Is Bullying” was presented to four classes focusing on character education, signs of bullying, verbs, and planet activities all relevant to the webisode developed by www.stopbullying.gov . This is a site that parents and teachers can freely use to teach students about bullying online and physical sites.
During the viewing of the webisode scenario, students were taught to recognize desktop computer hardware (Mouse, Monitor, and Keyboard…the MMK). The use of the MMK and basic computer skills will be incorporated in future visits.
