Ms. Catherine Hare Schexnayder
Welcome to my class, this is my 23rd year working with St. Charles Parish schools. This school year will be my 18th year at Ethel Schoeffner, and my tenth year at Norco Elementary. I have also had the privilege to work at Luling Elementary, and Carver Early learning Center. This year I will be teaching Keyboarding and Digital Literacy to third, fourth, and fifth grade.
In today’s society it is important for students to be able to use the vast amount of technology available to them. In Keyboarding students will learn basic typing skills using the touch typing method. Touch typing is typing quickly without using the sense of sight to find the keys.
In Digital Literacy Students will benefit from an understanding of a wide range of applications such as Google Docs, Slide, and Sheets, and using web-based resources. Skills are noted as introductory and mastery at each grade level and organized into seven specific categories:
- Basic Computer Operations
- Word Processing
- Spreadsheet (Tables, Charts, and Graphs)
- Mathematical Applications
- Presentation and Multimedia Tools
- Acceptable Use, Copyright, Plagiarism, and Online Safety
- Research and Information Gathering
- Communication and Collaboration
