Welcome to the Computer Lab class page.
Check back here for updates and news from Mrs. Jennie.
Here at YCA, we use TechnoKids curriculum in grades 1-8 to teach all kinds of computer applications and software. It is a fantastic way to explore the various programs in Microsoft Office in project based learning. We also practice keyboarding in grades 3-7, talk about the issues of online safety and dabble in a little coding.
K4 & K5 friends enjoy their computer lessons integrated with the books read to them during their library time.
Do you know how to help keep your children safe online?
Parenting wired kids can be difficult, especially if you didn't grow up with the same technologies. Check this site out for some great tips on things like social networking & cyberbullying: www.netsmartz.org
Another resource I use to help emphasize the recognition and understanding of digital citizenship and digital footprints is www.commonsensemedia.org
Thanks for checking out my class page. Feel free to stop by the computer lab sometime to see your child's work. I'd love to share it with you!
