    Class Overview

    All 5th and 6th graders will participate in a Computer Literacy class. This class will include instruction in the following technology areas: Google Docs/Microsoft Word, Google Slides/PowerPoint, Google Sheets/Excel, Publisher, Internet Searching, Internet safety, and Keyboarding.


    Internet Safety

    The Internet can be a wonderful resource for kids. They can use it to research school reports, communicate with teachers and other kids, and play interactive games. But that access can also pose hazards. Students will learn about potential online dangers, learn about their digital footprint, and be given ways to help them surf the Internet safely.



    Students are encouraged to practice keyboarding at home using free typing websites (see my sites and games pages), free type in Google Docs, Microsoft Word, or any way you can think of. Just make sure you use your home keys and even cover your hands. Accuracy is much more important than speed. The speed will come with practice. 


     Classroom Responsibilities, Rules and Conduct 

    ALL students will follow the guidelines listed on the Methacton School District Acceptable Use Policy (aka Responsible Use Agreement). See the Acceptable Use Policy page on my website.
