Microsoft Office for Kids
Engineering & Technology
STUDENTS LEARN THE FUNDAMENTALS OF USING A COMPUTER! Apps, file creation, file management, file storage, printing & more! These are the basics before learning to code :)
Kids will learn Microsoft Office & Windows Applications:
Word (word processing)
PowerPoint (slide show presentations)
Publisher (newsletters, letterhead, greeting cards, etc.)
In a fun and creative workshop-style class, each week we will study a new topic and create a take-home project for their computer notebook. By the end of the year, your child will have completed 33 projects of which to be proud: letter, envelope, address label, book report, greeting card, PowerPoint presentation, a reading log and more! They will also learn how a computer is made. This is a great class to introduce kids to the usefulness of computers beyond games and email, and prepare them for a high school level Computer Applications course.
Homework: 1 hour per week
Laptop computers required for class (some teachers can provide one, if needed) with Microsoft Office 2016 or later installed with Word, Excel, PowerPoint & Publisher
NOTE: Microsoft Office On-The-Web is FREE (click here for details) It includes Word, Excel & PowerPoint.
