Productivity is utilizing technology tools to facilitate the writing process, to create charts and graphs, manage information with databases and spreadsheets, use webbing tools for brainstorming the planning, organizing and prewrite for a written assignment. Creating digital works with Microsoft Publisher, Microsoft PowerPoint, Microsoft Word, Microsoft Excel, Prezi, etcetera are part of being creative and innovative in the productivity process. Communication and Collaboration are taught through group projects in which students must work together to accomplish an assignment. Some projects may be completed independently and presented to the class. Digital Citizenship is incorporated into Internet Safety lessons. It is extremely important for our students to know how to be safe online and why it is so crucial for them to be careful when surfing the net. Research and Information Fluency is another aspect of computer literacy. Extreme care is taken when allowing students to research topics. Fact Monster is an example of a safe research website for elementary students and will be used at school. Students learn a little trouble shooting as they use software and hardware at school. They learn how to fix simple problems that occur as they work in technology class. Keyboarding is a necessary skill that all students need to acquire. Third through fifth grades have the fine motor skills necessary to begin learning how to keyboard (type) properly. Younger students can begin learning the location of keys on the keyboard through games.
