Hello there! My name is Rebekah Orensten (pronounced Oren-steeen) and I LOVE my job as Library Media Specialist at BCMS! If you have any questions, please stop by the library or email me.
I am looking forward to starting my fifth year at The Creek (SY 2020-2021)!
Digital Media Explorations
In addition to my role as Library Media Specialist at Battle Creek Middle School I will also be teaching two sections of Digital Media Explorations (DME). In this class we will learn how to code with code.org, use our iPads to research, and how to create with digital tools. If you have any questions you can email me at firstname.lastname@example.org
iPads: Please let me know if your iPad is cracked or having any issues so I can help you immediately to support you for DME as well as your other class.
Things to know: We will be doing lots of project based learning and self paced learning through code.org and will be learning together.
Distance Learning Office Hours: My office hours will be daily and students do not need to attend the whole time, drop in if you have a question on an assignment or you need to check in. If the time doesn't work for you that day but you need help - please email me. I'll work with you to find a time to connect.
