Welcome to the Computer Lab Home Page. My name is Mary Zoeller and this is my 10th year teaching computer skills to grades 2-6. Prior to accepting this position I was a classroom teacher (1st, 4th, and 6th grades) for 16 years. I am very excited about the new school year!

 

I begin my day at the Elementary School teaching 2nd-4th grades and then my afternoon is spent at the Intermediate School teaching 5th and 6th grade.

 

All elementary classes receive an hour of computer skills instruction each week. 5th and 6th grade receive 9 continuous weeks (one term) of computer instruction.  We utilize Google Suite for education, a free suite of productivity tools including Gmail, Drive, Slides, Sites and Docs. It was designed hand-in-hand with teachers to help them save time, keep classes organized, and improve communication with students. All students in grades 2nd-12th have a school Gmail account to be used for school purposes only. Gmail addesses are your child's username@littlechute.k12.wi.us and passwords vary depending on which grade level your child is in.

 

15-30 minutes of each class time is spent learning proper keyboarding technique.  2nd grade uses a free website called, “Dance Mat Typing”, 3rd and 4th grade use a web-based program they can access from home called, “QWERTY Town", and 5th and 6th grade utilize a program called, "Typesy". At this point in time, keyboarding is essential as many projects and assessments are completed online. Additional time spent at home working on proper keyboarding skills would be beneficial!

 

Because we implement Google Suite, Microsoft applications (Word, Publisher, Powerpoint, Excel, Paint) although used on occasion, are not a primary focus. We also work on proper internet navigation, researching skills, Digital Citizenship using many lessons from the Common Sense Media curriculum (https://www.commonsensemedia.org/) digital camera use, utilizing Web 2.0 tools, and 3D printing (3rd and 4th grade).

 

Because our digital world is ever changing, so too are the lessons learned in the computer lab!
