Career Technology is an exploratory course (switches every trimester) that teaches students to be technologically literate and involved in critical and creative thinking activities. By providing opportunities for students to explore, ask questions, and use resources of information, students will be able to have college & career awareness, and to build character that will help them identify their interests , to problem solve, and plan for a good future. Students work in individual or group settings with hands-on computer software and other computer projects utilizing internet research, desktop publishing through Microsoft Office & others, to complete projects based around CNUSD’s directive of ’College, Career, Character’.
