3rd Grade Tech Update
Third grade students have also learned how to create a document in Microsoft Word, save a file to the network, create a folder in their documents, and open a document they have already created.
We will soon be starting a unit on Digital Citizenship through commonsensemedia.org that includes lessons on the rings of online responsibility, private and personal information, the power of words, keywords for online searches, and plagiarism.
4th and 5th Grade Tech Update
Fourth and Fifth grade students have also spent time becoming familiar with their school gmail account. We began by reviewing our district Acceptable Use Policy, and students participated in a lesson on email etiquette. They then practiced sending to a "mystery classmate" and learned how to reply to the message. After practicing a casual email, we learned how to email teachers, and reinforced proper formatting.
Our unit on Digital Citizenship will cover a few different topics at the two grade levels. Fourth grade will learn about strong passwords, making a pledge, spam, how to site a website, and digitally altering of photos. Fifth grade will learn about talking safely online, being a super digital citizen, privacy rules, cyberbullying, and media stereotypes.
