About the Class
Welcome to Mrs. Johnson's web page! Technology Applications is a fun course designed to teach keyboarding skills and introduce students to a variety of technologies. Students will learn word processing, spreadsheets, desktop publishing, graphic design, multimedia tools, and image editing. Students will also learn to use email to communicate and collaborative, social tools such as Google Classroom.

10 Tips For Safe Social Networking

Recent studies indicated that 73 percent of teens now have a smartphone and 92 percent of them go online every day. This creates a whole new set of concerns for parents. In fact, 88% of parents are worried about online safety.
 
If you are one of those parents concerned with social networking and your teen, consider applying some of the tips in this article from CyberWise. 
 

Did You Know?

Did you know that ANY assignment or test other than a posture check can be made up for full credit? The student will need to come in after school for a longer assignment like a drill sheet. Shorter items, like a typing test, can be done before or after school.  If you see an M in the gradebook, it means the student was absent when the assignment was due but has not yet made it up.

UltraKey for Home Use

A number of parents have inquired about purchasing our keyboarding program (UltraKey) for home use.   You can purchase it directly from the company at the following address:  https://secure.bytesoflearning.com/storehttps://secure.bytesoflearning.com/store

 

The program is usually about $40, but they have given Brabham parents a discount code to use to receive 40% off.  During the checkout  process use the following coupon code:  Brabham4429

 

Students are not required to purchase the program.  This offer is for those who wish to benefit from additional practice at home.  Students may also stay after school and get extra practice on Mondays and Thursday.  Also students may practice keyboarding at home by using the drill sheets found on my web page.  These drill sheets coincide with the lessons we are doing in class and are taken from the sentences used during typing tests in class.
