Discussion for StAIR - Technology In My World
Jamin Jones (Teacher (K-12))
This is a great introduction to students who are just starting to use computers. It really shows all the pieces that are important as well as what is safe to share on a computer. I like how there is an otpion for the words to be read to the students as many of the students may be too young to read the words on the screen.
It would be useful to provide a follow up lesson for students on how to turn the computer on and access specific programs.

This is a wonderful Stand Alone Instruction Resourse for students grades 2 and higher. It has clear directions and is easy to navigate. It also provides audio for each slide as well as appropriate images. This StAIR has great direction and encouragement if a user chooses a wrong answer. Students must deduce answers from rules as well as apply rules to examples. Overall it teaches students about technology, computers, and online safety in a fun and simple way.
