Saints Felicitas & Perpetua Catholic School
Computer Lab / Technical Curriculum
Welcome students! My name is Kevin Yamamoto and I will be your computer lab teacher here at Sts. Felicitas & Perpetua Catholic School.
First and foremost, I am excited to be teaching here at Sts. Felicitas & Perpetua Catholic School. Our principal, staff members, supportive teachers, and all the great students have made me feel quite at home. I am looking forward to another rewarding and fantastic year in not only getting to know the students but also being able to teach them what I know.
Curriculum Goals: This is an important turning point in regards to learning new computer skills. The students will be taught basics in typing using the Mavis Beacon typing Program for the first couple of months and will progress into MS Word. Already introduced to MS Word in 3rd grade, we will now learn how to perform more tasks in MS Word. This will include intermediate word processing and intermediate Web Browsing using Internet Explorer. The remainder of the school year will be an introduction into Presentations with MS PowerPoint. Each student will be given a username and password to personalize his/her own work. Internet filters, blocking programs, and firewalls are already installed to protect students against unauthorized websites.
Computer Programs: The Learning Network – Mavis Beacon Typing
Microsoft Office – MS Word & MS PowerPoint
