In computer class, a favorite class for many of the students, the use of technology starts in Kindergarten and continues through 8th grade. Students are taught the basic components of a computer inside and out, as well as the terminology for each part. They are also taught basic skills like logging on and off with a password, opening and closing programs, saving to a folder and to an external device; and another skill that is very important, safely navigating the internet. Students also get instruction in keyboarding and use of programs like Microsoft Word, Excel and Publisher, and Power Point.   Students may also have the option of using Blackboard to connect to classroom activities at home.
