    Welcome To REMOTE Computer Literacy Tech/STEM 2020-2021!

     Computer literacy tech/STEM is located in Room 226 STEM Lab, however, this year, I will be teaching my classes Remotely via Google Meet!  All students will be using Chrome books at home to work, therefore, all work will be Internet-based and easy to access.  All students will become professionals at using Google Meet, become fluent in logging into the Google Classroom, and learn how to Submit Forms.  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.  They will learn how to Turn In to the Google Classroom as well.  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 1-5 will be learning the Google G-Suite on Chrome books 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-mails using G-mail for students.  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.  
    This year, I will do my best to bring STEM Remotely to my K-5 students to help them continue to create, collaborate, communicate and develop critical thinking skills.  The students will work on Coding, Circuitry and some construction at home with LEGOs and any other building bricks they have on hand. 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. I will not let this year go by without properly preparing my students.  
     Feel free to contact me with any concerns or problems - drsendecki@jacksonsd.org

  • Students in grades K-5 are encouraged to go to www.code.org and practice computer programming during the school year in Code.org.  Please Do NOT log in during the school year before we start our Coding Unit (Nov.-Jan.).  Simply go to students at the bottom of the page and choose an activity.  Remember, if you are not logging in, it will not save the activity that you do. Once we complete our Coding Unit, then you will be able to log in to your work and your progress will be saved.
