Keyboarding 2 Agenda Oct.-Dec

Keyboarding 2 Agenda August – October 1

Typing Speed Goal = 30 wpm (Practice typing before school begins) – There are many websites on which to practice (e.g. http://www.typing.com)

It is required that your student has Microsoft Office (not the free version which will expire) and a Google email account for the Keyboarding/Software Applications Class. This Google account can be a personal one for the student or a parent’s account. The student will need to know and be familiar with the username and password. If your student or you already have a Google account (email @gmail.com) then there is no need to create a new account. If they do not have a Google account, please follow the instructions in the link below to set up the account. You can click this link to get started: Google Email Account   

We will be using Google Classroom to email homework, quiz and test assignments, so it will be mandatory that your child is signed into Google Classroom . Please have this step completed before the first day of class.  Please see the email that was sent on how to set this up and for the class code. 

Please make sure your child can connect to WiFi.  Practice logging in to email and connecting to WiFi before the first day of class. Laptops needs to be charged before class. Chargers are for backup only. If the laptop will not hold a charge, please bring the charger to class each meeting.

I am so excited to be teaching Keyboarding 2 and Software Applications this year!  I look forward to meeting you and assisting you in becoming better digital citizens. About the Teacher – Elizabeth Orr
