About The Class
Gilbert Intermediate fifth graders are starting many exciting new projects! Effective use of computer applications is foremost among the things required in today's business and academic environment. In class, we will be using business programs such as Microsoft Word, Powerpoint, and Excel. Students are expected to collaborate with their peers through the Google Drive; this software allows an unprecedented level of student interaction with both classmates and teachers. I will also be introducing students to Web 2.0 sites and activities in order to allow them unique opportunities to creatively present what they have learned in all subject areas. As careers and educational opportunities are constantly and dramatically evolving, I look forward to giving your student the tools with which he or she can build a productive future.
