ABOUT OUR COMPUTER LAB

HARDWARE

Computers:  Roosevelt School's Computer Lab is equipped with 32 PC computers running on Windows 8. Students in grades 1-3 are using Microsoft Office 2007, which includes applications such as Excel, Word, PowerPoint, and Publisher.  Students in grades 4 and 5 have their own accounts this year and are using Microsoft Office 365, which includes all of the programs as the earlier version, but with Outlook e-mail and One Note.  Students in all classes primarily use Google Chrome as their main web browser, but also have access to Internet Explorer.  This allows them to partake in web-based activities as well. Students from grades K-2 attend the computer lab once a week, and grades 3-5 have computers for two periods a week.

SMARTboard:  The Smart Board is an electronic white board which allows you to interact with your computer by touching the projected computer screen on the board itself. The Smart Board can also take handwritten text and convert it into computer generated text.

COMPUTER INSTRUCTION

Instruction focuses on the integration of technology with the Core-Curriculum Standards. Students use
word processing, spreadsheets, presentations and the Internet in areas directly related to the ongoing
classroom curriculum.

SOFTWARE

Microsoft Word:  The students will learn how to type, format, save, retrieve and modify their work. They will learn how to add columns, tables, clipart, and mail merging to their documents. They will learn how to use the spell checker, grammar checker, and thesaurus to improve their communication skills.

PowerPoint:  The students will learn how to communicate their ideas using presentation software. They will learn how to apply backgrounds, import clip art, import video files, import sound, develop decorative titles, animate their objects, and organize their information into an effective presentation.

Excel:  The students will learn how to create and format tables using data collected.  To communicate information about their set of data, students will apply features such as calculating with formulas, sorting data, and graphing.

Publisher:  The students will learn how to use publishing software to create newsletters, brochures, signs, flyers, banners, cards and calendars to present ideas.

Outlook:  This e-mail program allows students to receive and send e-mails to others in the Garfield School District. Students may use the e-mail program for school-related purposes, such as e-mailing a teacher a question about an assignment or sharing a file with another student.

One Note:  This is a digital notebook in which students may keep notes on topics and can receive files shared with them from their teachers.

Kidpix:  Younger students will be able to express their creativity through this drawing program.  Students will learn to draw, paint, design, record sounds, make pictures move, apply stamps, draw shapes, add text, and write descriptions.
