TEACHING TIPS

1. These lessons are the main activity for a class. I recommend planning a warm up activity (like 10 minutes of typing) and early finisher activities (here are sites you can use). You’re likely going to have some students complete the lesson in 5-10 minutes and others that will still be working when you say time is up.

2. In the lesson plans you’ll see me talk about screencasts you could make. You’ll either need to demonstrate the activities live or make a screencast of instructions for each lesson. If you’ve never made them before, check out this blog post to learn more about it. Screencasts are a game changer!

3. You may upload the student templates to a learning management system or password protected page of your own website. As long as the files aren’t available publicly on the web then you’re following the terms of use. If you need ideas for how to share files with students, read this blog post.

4. The assessments are optional but will be helpful if technology is a graded subject. If you’re new to teaching technology and curious about grading these skills, read this blog post.

HOW ARE THESE DIFFERENT FROM YOUR TECHNOLOGY CURRICULUM?

The k5tech.net curriculum has warm ups and early finisher activities plus it is all housed on my website. These software lessons are just the main activity and assessments and I’m providing you with all of the files to put into your learning management system. The content in these software lessons does not overlap with the k5tech.net curriculum at all so you can use both.
