Does your child enjoy using technology, but is not interested in building it? Then this is the right class for you! We do not design robots, assemble Legos, or engineer bridges; instead, we use existing and emerging modern technology as tools to complete meaningful projects. In this class, students will have amazing opportunities to create Claymation videos, digital art, movies, digital storytelling, cartoon animation, voice recordings, interactive presentations and many more multi-media products - all using the most modern, 21st century digital apps and devices. In addition
to this extremely exciting and fun program for children; students are simultaneously learning positive ways to use technology and building digital citizenship skills in a world dominated by interactive mobile games and videos.

During the 8-week class, students will produce fictional stories using different digital platforms - such as a claymation app, a movie maker, digital book and animation creators, and photo story apps. Children will be so engaged and having so much fun, they will not even realize the important skills they will be building for their future!
I have taken classes for myiPad at the Apple Store and came away feeling like I had been taking a drink ofwater from a FIREHOSE!! So you can imagine, I was skeptical about taking ANOTHER CLASS on my iPad. So after putting my concerns behind me I registered for m2 academy's adult class: Your iPad:It’s More Than Just for E-Mail!!
Well let me say upfront, that this class is NOT like a class from the Apple Store. The instructor not only KNOWS her material, but more importantly she is constantly refining her teaching methods which allows her the ability to not only understand your question but also tailor her response for your particular needs. She really is a breath of fresh air. She has a prepared syllabus, but she is prepared to step off her prepared course to include your specificquestions and change direction to respond to your questions and ideas.
In my own experience, by our second class I had learned about thefollowing apps: Drawing Pad; Blogger; and Pic Collage. Based on these apps, during that class wetook a break and I actually went forth and made a 4 minute infologue about Green Acres Center. Of course it wasn’t an MGM product, but I HAD DONE IT!!........and it wasn’t bad!!!
If you have any concerns,bring them with you and ask, and trustme, I am not writing this endorsement for any remuneration, I was her studentand not only enjoyed it but learned a great deal about seven  apps that I would not have otherwise learned about nor had the advantage of an instructor who could talk me through the entire app AT MY PACE!!
