Students will learn basic keyboarding skills (finger placement, home row keys, etc.) through the use of a computer based program and practice. The weekly practice of keyboarding will continue throughout the school year as part of the regular program. Visit www.typing.com to learn more. 
Students will learn to collect work in a digital archive. They will learn which pieces (best work, work that shows most growth, work they are most proud of, etc.) should be included in the portfolio in order to create a complete picture of themselves as a learner. Students will learn how to organize their artifacts and write captions which show their reflection on their work. Students will understand that this portfolio captures growth over time and should constitute evidence of achievement towards goals/standards/outcomes.
