Technology Que

Our primary and intermediate students in grades K-5 cover Online Safety, Computer Parts, in/out functions of each part and enjoy online activities to promote their knowledge of Computer Terminology associated with each program used. Websites activities are used to strengthen students’ understanding and skills.

 

The middle school students participate in assignments for Online Safety, Types of Cyberbullying, Computer Parts and the Microsoft programs terminology in readiness for tests on these topics at Quizlet.com/sfasit.  Proper research with citation of their sources in MLA format is expected.

 

Keyboarding is always a staple in computer classes and the Mavis Beacon Typing program is used on a regular basis for all grades PreK-8.  PreK students learn how to use the mouse, the names and purpose of computer parts and reinforcement of their letters and numbers as they enjoy grade appropriate websites.

 

The Google Suite Classroom assignments will be posted for grade 3-8 students.  Students are to check their Google Classrooms.  We will begin these assignments during Computer classes.  All assignments must be completed and turned in by the indicated due date.

I welcome any questions and concerns you may have about your child's education and progress in our Computer classes.  Below you will find a convenient contact form for easy correspondence.
