Ms. Roxanne Perry
Welcome to the ICS Computer Lab
Our technology program at Immaculate Conception School focuses on preparing our students for their future tasks both in their private life as well as their school career. As technology teacher I feel it is my responsibility to teach them those skills necessary to be successful members of their community.
- Our 8th graders installed hard drives in our new computers that were donated by computersforlearning.gov. We just finished our unit on the parts of a computer so these guys were all set to go! Hey Apple and BestBuy, give these kids a job!
We focus on 3 parts of skill sets in our computer lab. The first part is keyboarding for grades 3-8 and basic computer knowledge for grades k-2. The second piece focuses on digital citizenship, a concept that can not be ignored in our world today. The third area of study focuses on computer science. This would include more intricate components of a computer or networking system, knowledge of widely used software programs, as well as coding and programming itself.
We use the Google platform for most of what we accomplish in computer class. This is a fantastic way to teach the students about web based software. We are also able to set up and utilize the Google Classroom feature which is an excellent way for students to access their assignments and for parents to see what their child has been doing in the computer lab.
Our 8th Graders are a 1:1 Chromebook classroom. They are assigned a Chromebook at the beginning of the year and carry it with them all day at school to complete their schoolwork.
