Technology Literacy by Eighth Grade
We use The Maryland Technology Literacy Standards for Students as a guide to integrate technology into the essential curriculum.  Students use a variety of programs including Microsoft Office programs such as Word, PowerPoint and Excel.  Students also have access to websites that provide additional support for essential curriculum skills.  Students work on a variety of technology projects with our computer lab facilitator, Mrs. Gaume, on a weekly basics.
