Grades K-2 are using laptops. We are learning to navigate the Windows environment to access curriculum and web based activities. We are also polishing our keyboarding and mouse skills.
Grades 3-8 will be learning how to use Google Apps for Education
We will be shifting to Google Apps in order to have cloud based applications that can be accessed anywhere you have an internet connection and can be used on almost all devices from desktop computers to smartphones.
Students will be learning to use Google Docs, Slides and Sheets in order to make curriculum based documents, multimedia presentations and spreadsheets.
Some teachers will be beginning to use Google Classroom.
Google Classroom is a blended learning platform for schools that aim to simplify creating, distributing and grading assignments in a paperless way.
Students will learn how to navigate this environment.
All classes are learning Internet Safety and Etiquette, as well as how to properly search the internet for reliable information. We also discuss ethics, plagiarism and software piracy.
