Welcome to Computers/Tech/STEM 2021-2022
Welcome Back to the STEM Lab!
Please check with your HR teacher for Google Classroom codes to Join.
New students will join once they have our Computer Class.
If you are home on quarantine, here are some activities you can do at home for Computers/Tech:
_______________________________________________________________________________________________________________________📢 How to be prepared for class:All of our assignments will be completed on Google Classroom. It is imperative that all students in Grades K-5 bring their Charged, District Assigned Chromebook to school, especially on Computer/Tech days.📢 Information to know for class:It is important for the students to be mentally present while in our STEM lab learning about computer literacy and engaging in STEM Challenges. I recommend that the students should go home and duplicate what they learned in class and teach it to a family member. This will make the learning of new skills more important. In computer literacy tech/STEM, the students will be challenged on a daily basis with real-world situations and life skills that prepare them for our constantly changing technological world.All of the students participate in STEM or Coding Challenges throughout the year. They are learning how to work collaboratively with LEGO's to engineer, design, report, discuss, and reflect; with the Dash and Dot Robots to engineer, program, design, report, discuss and reflect, and with KEVA planks to engineer, design, create artistically, report, discuss and reflect. Please remember to ask your child about their STEM Challenges.All Announcements📢 will take place in the Google Classroom Stream Tab. All Assignments📋 will be Completed and Turned In through the Classwork Tab. I will communicate personally with each student and/or grown up, through Private Comments✍️, if any changes need to be made, once an assignment📋 has been handed in. This is how your child can communicate directly with me as well.The first assignment📋 for all students will cover how to do all of the above. Assignments will all have Due Dates. We will work on Google Classroom👩🏫, Drive, Docs, Slides, and Sheets, depending on what grade your child is in. We will also cover Internet Safety, Digital Citizenship, and Digital Footprints. In addition, we will still do as much STEM as I can find for the students using appropriate and proper guidelines, like, Coding, Circuitry, KEVA Planks, and LEGO. I will do my very best to make this school year as exciting and engaging as it should be.Students need to Log into their Google accounts, Press on the 9 boxes (waffle) Apps Launcher, Press Google Classroom, and the Grade and HR Teacher name for Comp/STEM.If you need to contact my, please email me - email@example.com________________________If you have a problem with a district Chromebook, please contact your HR teacher and CC Ms. Konopack (Media teacher) when it happens. Ms. Konopack has a small window of time (9:00am-9:17am) in the mornings to tend to these matters and get a loaner chromebook to students who need it.__________________________________________________If you are interested in purchasing a Chromebook Case through the school district, please read the information above.
_______________________________________________________________________All Students: Please check your Comp/STEM Google Classrooms for assignments.If you have the Google Classroom App on smartphones or other devices, you can get reminders that work is Due.Please Mark as Done/Turn In your Assignments on time.Assignments will almost always take place in school.___________________________________________PLEASE: Be healthy and be well!Remember, my Tiger friends,I am committed to supporting and connecting with you and your families.Communication is the key to success!I love you all! ♥__________________________________Welcome To Computer Literacy Tech/STEM 2021-2022!
Computer literacy tech/STEM is located in Room 226 STEM Lab. All students will be using Chromebooks in school to work, therefore, all work will be Internet-based and easy to access. All students will become fluent in logging into the Google Classroom, and learn how to Turn In Assignments. Students in grades K will spend time becoming familiar with the keyboard by using a variety of applications on the Internet, as well as working on cross-curricular assignments. Students in grade 1 will spend their time in learning and reviewing letter recognition on the Chromebook keyboard and learn Google Docs. Students in Grades 2 through 5 will spend their time learning and reviewing word-processing, spreadsheets, and presentations, as well as become proficient in Turning In Assignments into the Google Classroom. Students in grades 3 through 12 usually take standardized assessments online. This requires a knowledge of keyboarding and word-processing skills, as well as practice taking the assessment. Students will have the opportunity to incorporate real-world situations into the lessons, as well as focus on Internet Safety, Digital Citizenship and Digital Footprints in Computer Literacy Tech/STEM.Throughout the school year, students in grades K-5 will be learning the Google Workspace on Chromebooks and use Google Classroom to find all assignments, add assignments and turn in assignments during their Computer Literacy Tech/STEM Remote period. The students in grades 2-5 will also learn and understand how to manipulate, communicate and create e-mail. The Jackson School district Google accounts for students are for use within the school district; students may only communicate with other individuals who are in the school district and have a district Google account. The students in grades 1-5 will be learning and review Google for Education Sheets, Slides, Forms and Drive as well.I would also like to see them incorporate photos into their classwork from their chromebooks if possible. Throughout their time in Computer Literacy Tech/STEM at Elms, the students will continually add upon what was previously learned until the students are fully prepared for middle school when they are promoted.Feel free to contact me with any concerns or problems - firstname.lastname@example.org
