Students in grades kindergarten through six meet weekly for computer projects/skills. Kindergarten through second grade students are taught keyboarding skills using the Keyboarding Without Tears program. Upper level students use a basic online keyboarding program. The WCSU Digital Learning Plan 2016-2019 is our latest tech document. The Grade Expectations for Vermont’s Framework of Standards and Learning Opportunities for Information Technology (see below) are also used as a guide for our curriculum. The WCSU Scope and Sequence checklist (see below) helps to guide us as well. The K-6 grade curriculum can easily integrate computer skills into daily lessons. Our Mac mobile lab stays busy every day. Fifth and sixth graders have 1:1 computing with chromebooks. We also have iPads to share for all levels.
Here are examples of student created virtual holiday cards.
Below is a small animated movie created on the iPad using the app, ChatterPIX. It is a singing bee. The Honeybee is Barnard’s mascot. These 2 first graders came up with their songs “on the fly”.
Here are some interesting places to go online.
