Studentís will use Time Station to log in and out. I was able to contact this company and explain the Occupational Course of Study program and the required work hours. The company allotted me enough to allow for each of my studentís to have a log in for work. I have created ID badges for work through this company. The company also provides the ability to print reports of time worked. The neat thing is, Time Station also totals the amount of time elapsed for the studentís after the clock back in from work, keeps the dates, and totals it for the month.
I am very interested the the touch screen laptop for the special needs classroom but would love to be able for my student's to experience newer technology in new laptops for the classroom since ours are the old ones that used to be used on a laptop cart in all classes for the entire school. All the academics of English (4 classes), math (3 classes), science (2 classes), history (2 classes) are taught through the NCVPS program requiring computers (North Carolina Virtual Public Schools). Wonderful program that allows the exceptional children's student's in the Occupational Course of Study to be successful and feel like they are taking the same classes that everyone else is that are working on diplomas.
Cross-Curriculum Ideas
This could also be used during our remediation time built into the school day in order to work activities for Applied Science, Biology, English 9-12, Intro to Math, Algebra I, American History I & II, and all Occupational Prep classes (I-IV).
