Computers 6, 7 & 8
Welcome to Computers 6, 7 & 8
I am Ms. Calderon. You have been assigned to my class; and I have every intention of making this an exciting and dynamic year. I strive to provide my students with the excellent educational climate they deserve as well as to comply with the District Technology policy.
The first objective of this class is that you learn to use the Internet safely and efficiently. Therefore, we will spend about 3 weeks working on assignments conductive to this goal.
During the course of this year you will learn to:
- create and edit word documents,
- create and edit spreadsheets,
- create and edit databases,
- create greeting cards, and
- create, edit and present power point presentations.
In addition you will learn to use the keyboard to increase speed and accuracy, create movies using Movie Maker, create and edit pictures using Paint and the draw feature of Microsoft Word, and to edit pictures using Pixlr. At the end of the year, you will create a wiki or blog similar to this one.
As you can see we have a busy year ahead of us, but it is going to be a great learning experience for both you and me. So get in the bus and let's start our ride to the technology highway .
