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
We have included some free links (which we use at school) for your student(s) to access when at home.
