Don't Save your passwords!

Having Google save your password is a HORRIBLE idea! You don't want the next person that uses the Computer or Chromebook to have access to your accounts. If they delete your work, it could be lost forever. If they send out an unwanted email, you will be responsible. If they do an inappropriate search you could lose your computer privileges!

Computers and Technology

During the Computers and Technology "trimester", students will be exposed to a wide range of skills. These skills will help them become lifelong learners in our technology driven society. In addition to becoming more efficient in keyboarding, the students will explore a number of programs while developing projects to be used across the curriculum.  In addition to projects students will be given a foundation for Internet Safety and Digital Citizenship.


READABILITY is the most important aspect of any presentation. If you audience can't read it, you wasted your time. 

 Do's and Don'ts


Copy and paste this into your presentation. 


If you want people to look at your information, you need to limit the number of words you put on a slide. Leave out information that isn’t important, because we don’t want to waste people's time. People will not normally read a long paragraph, but they will look at and remember short bits of information. With that in mind, it is probably best to use bullets and limit the number of bullets to six and the number of words in a bullet to 6, we don’t want to use more than 36 words on any slide.


5th Grade

I have given you the slides and the guidelines for each slide, you need to add the information. Don't worry about following the rules of presentation, this is just our notes.
