December Technology Tips
Student Start Up Page
As you know, the Student Start Up Page should be the first thing students see when they login to a computer and click on the Chrome icon. I would highly recommend taking a look at the Start Up Page next time you have a chance to see the different student options. For instance, the "Britannica Online" icon takes students directly to an elementary version of Britannica online in which the reading level for articles will be no higher than 5th grade.
To view the Student Start Up Page from any computer, go to your school's website and click on the Technology Tab on the left hand-side. On the next page under Technology Services Student Support Links, select UCPS Student Start Up Page (Elementary).
*Please remember that this page is for ALL elementary schools and we cannot make the icons school specific.
Once finished, students can email their final product to the teacher to print or if the students are working in the Computer Lab (where they should be able to print), they can print off their interactive pieces when finished.
