CLA We affectionately refer to it as "Incredibly Cruel Torture(the students think the T stands for Teacher  imagine that!)". ICT/Digital Technology is an introduction to the basic concepts and skills of modern electronics and computers. This class can be used as a prerequisite for more advanced classes in electronics and computers. Topics covered include numbering systems, logic gates, boolean algebra, Karnaugh maps, flip flops, shift registers, counters, adders, subtractors, and a few other fun things. Students wire all labs using breadboards. This might just be one of the coolest computer classes out there (wow, do we sound like geeks). Software to draw logic diagrams Some pics of the labs we do Here are the documents that Mr. Allen, Mr. Reid, Mr. Goodman, Mr. Grack and/or Mr. Coglianese will be using this semester. Draw and Experiment with Logic Circuits You may need the free Acrobat reader to view/print these.
