Mrs. Alex Harwood will be operating our computer lab this year. Please check out the Internet Links at left for additional information.
Welcome to another year of Computer Lab. This year we will be learning to use Microsoft Publisher, Excel, Word, Adobe Photoshop, Adobe Illustrator and Adobe Muse.
Also, this year we are continuing our courses in iSafe and teaching students how to be respectful on the web, how to deal with Cyber Bullying and how to use the web safely. This course also teaches how to research the web effectively and safely while working on class projects and compiling information for research papers.
Along with the design side of computers we are adding stronger elements of typing by using www.clubtyping.com to show proper typing techniques, proper key uses and understanding the keyboard symbols. Due to poor habits of single finger typing, wrong hand placement, and hen pecking, we are integrating the method of old school typing instruction to provide some correction to these improper typing issues to give a solid typing foundation for our students. We encourage students to practice typing at home as well.
We believe that Computer Lab is more than just typing, it's integrating technology with education and using today's resources to expand education to a higher level.
As this year progresses we look forward to creating projects that both educate and inspire students to dream and plan for their future. Thank you parents for your support with this program.
We have included some free links (which we use at school) for your student(s) to access when at home.
