Second Grade is up and running!

This week I got the privilege of meeting and leading a technology lesson with all of the Second Grade Classes. We had a great time getting to know each other and also getting to know the equipment that we have available to us here at Herrington. The students learned about laptop expectations; how they should carry the laptop, how they should treat the laptop, the basics of caring for and using it appropriately. The students were also able to turn on their laptop and practice logging in. Along the way, they learned some computer vocabulary words like desktop, mouse, touchpad, icon, and keyboard. We also talked about the differences between these types of computers: a desktop, a laptop, a netbook, and a tablet. I know that the Second Grade Team has some great projects planned for this year and the students are ready to go!
