Are You a 21st Century Learner?

Mrs. Dixon instructs Mrs. Furr's students on setting up their Google Docs account. The students were very excited to get their accounts up and running!

Third grade is off to a great start this year exploring a variety of new technology to help us become 21st century learners! Each week this month we have had the opportunity to receive special support with Google Docs. UCPS instructional technology facilitator, Ashley Dixon, has shared her time not only with the 3rd grade students but teachers as well. We are learning how to collaborate with students and colleagues on the many uses of Google Docs. Students are excited to be learning about technology they can use at school and home to communicate with teachers and friends. Using Google Docs, students can work collaboratively and simultaneously on one document to create a presentation. We look forward to using this fun and motivating technology across the curriculum in book clubs, science and social studies presentations, and various reports.
