My name is Mr. Shelton. Through St. Vrain Online Global Academy and Florida Virtual School, I am an experienced instructor for the following courses:
AP Computer Science A – My most rigorous course for advanced placement high school/college credit. This program boasts slightly over 100 assessments, quizzes and exams. After finishing this course, you will be college ready in the programming language of Java and you will also be ready to write your first app!
Foundations of Programming – This course is a more relaxed exploration into programming, boasting approximately 36 assessments, quizzes, and exams. If you do not think you are quite ready for the rigor of AP, but you want to learn of some fundamentals of programming, then this might be your course. This course teaches the fundamentals of the Python programming language.
Foundations of Web Design – This title of this course pretty much gives it away. In this course, you are cast into your first web design position as an intern. Your job as an intern is to create three websites based on clients’ needs over the course of one semester. At various stages in building the three websites, you will complete approximately 40 assessments, quizzes, and exams.
Digital Information Technology – This course provides fundamental knowledge of a wide variety of technology used for productivity in many career fields. This is the course where you will learn the fundamentals of Microsoft Word, Microsoft Excel, Microsoft PowerPoint, a little bit of Web design, Internet research, and computer safety/security. The course contains about 37 assessments, quizzes, and exams.
My 22 years of professional experience in technology, teaching and learning allows me to provide high levels of support for my students. Like my fellow instructors, I believe in support all the way to the finish line. You can reach me by way of text, email, phone call, live classroom, teleconference, recorded video, some social media, chat, and/or any technology medium that you feel comfortable using. We have a world of technology at our disposal.
In my spare time, I enjoy family life with my wife and daughter. Of course, technology is also a hobby. So is maintaining, updating, and repairing my 50-year-old home! In fact, it is time for trip to Home Depot. See you in class (figuratively speaking).
