Welcome to Mr. Deakin's Tavelli website.  I will be updating this website throughout the year to keep students, parents, and teachers informed about what we're working on in the computer lab, Dream Team, and Little Kids 
Rock. The projects we do in the lab are based on ISTE NETS, and give students practice using a variety of digital tools. We also practice touch typing, and regularly work to improve our keyboarding technique, speed and accuracy. Most projects we work on in grades 1-5 are assigned through Google Classroom. Parents, if you're interested in seeing what we're doing, ask your student to show you his/her Google Classroom page; they can sign in from home with their PSD email address and password.
