Here We Go!
The Techie Kids have been working hard in our computer lab. We’ve learned about Internet Safety, avatars, digital footprints, keyboarding, word processing, presentations, animations, spreadsheets, research skills, images, and citations. Whew, that’s not bad for only 40 minutes once per week!
We are finally ready to begin blogging!
Last week, we discussed some of the features of our blog. This week, we will get to leave our first blog comment. Let’s look at the Quality Commenting poster shared with us by Miss Jordan from 4KM & 4KJ in Australia.
