Welcome to the 2018/19 Computer Apps School Year!

Welcome to Mrs. McGinty's Computer Applications classes. You will be learning many new things in Computer Applications. We will be working on fun projects and learning software in MS Office and Google. We will also be learning the introduction to computer programming using Code.org. It is very important to be aware of ergonomics when using the computer. It is also important to learn about cyber-safety when using the internet. If you want to practice keyboarding, there are typing games online that can help you improve your speed and accuracy. To better understand what the toolbar icons represent in MS Word there are some great tutorial lessons online, too.

The software that we will be using to learn to key by touch is MicroType Pro 6.

Welcome to Lake Middle School. I am looking forward to meeting you.
