Welcome to Oakridge Elementary
Computer Technology Lab
Our computer technology class is state of the art, having iMac computers for every student. Our learning environment will include lessons to incorporate technology in our student’s classroom and everyday life experiences.
All students will come to Technology for one 40-minute session per week. During this time, we will use several computer programs to create projects that are collaborated with academic standards. In addition, students will learn basic skills in typing and internet safety. Learning about the main components of the computer are also part of our studies.
Computer Science is such an important factor in the lives of our students and will be in their upcoming years. We will concentrate many of our weeks on learning how to program. The Hour of Code is an “introduction to computer science, designed to demystify "code", to show that anybody can learn the basics, and to broaden participation in the field of computer science.”Along with the Hour of Code we will explore many other programming experiences though out the year.
