Eureka Springs Elementary Computer Lab
Welcome to The Eureka Springs Elementary School’s Computer Lab Web Page! Students at Eureks Springs Elementary attend classes in the Computer Lab as part of their "Specials" rotations in which they will learn and develop fundamental computer/keyboarding skills. Students also come to the lab and work on projects/papers using computers and their programs throughout the year. Fourth grade will have two specials in the lab, the second one is Keyboarding. Throughout the year children will develop basic typing skills and work towards becoming proficient at typing, by the end of the year. When the Lab is not being used for rotations, teachers reserve time slots to bring their classes in to use the lab for projects/research. Below are a list of websites that are fun /interesting and educational! As I find more I will add them and a description of the site.
