A Note from our Technology Specialist, Nancy Ranasinghe
Keyboarding (formerly known as typing), is a life skill that is part of the English and Language Arts standards for Writing. Next year, the state of Georgia’s goal is for all students to take the Georgia Milestones Assessment online. In order for the students to be successful and complete any written portion of the assessment, they must have fluent keyboarding skills. In order to be fluent in keyboarding, students must practice at home consistently. There are many free sites available to practice typing. Grades 2-5 have all practiced keyboarding on the sites on my website during computer lab, but regular practice is recommended. Please monitor your child’s progress, and remind them of proper finger placement on the home row. Click here for more information.
This summer, please talk to your child about Digital Citizenship. I encourage you to be aware of the activities your students participate in online. There are 8 components to Digital Citizenship; Internet, Safety, Cyberbullying, Self-Image & Identity, Creative Credit & Copyright, Relationships & Communication, Information Literacy, Digital Footprint & Reputation, and Privacy & Security.
Reinforce with your child how to be safe online and make good choices. If we don't do it in the real world, don't do it online. Don't talk to strangers. Don't give out your personal information. Ask before you go someplace you've never been. Be kind. Visit www.commonsensemedia.org for recommendations by age. Click here to visit my blog for more information about Digital Citizenship.
Thank you! Have a fun and safe summer!
