A NOTE FROM OUR INNOVATIVE TECHNOLOGY COACH
Keeping Kids Safe Online
In the world of technology that follows us everywhere, all day long, parental controls is a topic that can be difficult to keep up with. Do you need parental controls? What are the options? Do they really work? Common Sense Media has information that can guide parents to make informed decisions in what is best for their family. Go to CommonSenseMedia.org and choose the tab ‘Parents Need to Know’.
Student Can Improve Their Typing Skills
Students have been introduced to two typing programs. They were very excited to begin their typing adventures. Typing.com allows students to practice typing at any time when logging into Clever. Students enjoy watching their levels soar as they practice efficient typing. Ask your child about their most recently learned keys!
