Digital Art Work!

Ms. McKelvey- Technology Specialist

Hello from tech lab!

Our 1st grade students have been mastering efficiency with clicking the mouse and how to use the interactive touch screen while working in ABCya Paint. Students created collages to help represent virtues of hope, humility and thanksgiving. Students also practiced using shortcut keys to print their collages. We will next start creating our Christmas gift in Microsoft Word and explore interesting features Word has to offer. 1st graders will practice saving to a specific project file because it is important to develop organization skills on the computer that will benefit for a lifetime. I recently read that the average IT person or information worker spends a little over 4.5 hours a week looking for an existing document. That is a lot of lost productivity time! Click here to read article. We will be focusing on typing skills after we complete or Christmas projects.
