Dear Parents and Students,
Welcome to Fallen Timbers Middle School computer class. Students only need to bring headphones or earbuds to class each day. During computer class this quarter, students will have the opportunity to earn points on projects using the following applications:
- Google Apps
- Photo Booth
These projects will account for approximately 70% of their grade while the remaining points are earned by completing exercises to help improve keyboarding skills using the following free online typing website. Progress will be recorded and saved both at school and at home when students log in using the following:
- username: lastname_firstname
- password: 6 digit student ID#
Since many students spend a considerable amount of time on the computer outside of the classroom, poor habits are difficult to break so if you could encourage your student to use proper technique whenever possible, they will continue to see improvement in keyboarding speed and accuracy.
During class each day, students will be given steps to complete for one of the projects above and upon completion for the day the students are expected to work on keyboarding skills using TypingWeb. If your student falls behind in TypingWeb then they can get caught up at home. If you have any questions or concerns you can contact me via email firstname.lastname@example.org or call the school at 419-877-0601.
