December Newsletter

Welcome to NSD21
Technology for 
21st Century Learners

Tech Updates:

Lab Keyboarding Skills: Students in computer lab class now learn to keyboard through an excellent online keyboarding program overseen by Ms. Kimble.

6 7 8 Blog Nomination: Students in grades 6, 7, and 8 comment and blog on our class blog, Eagles Write at http://eagleswrite.edublogs.org . We have been honored with a nomination for Class Blog Edublogs Award (Eddie), and we made it to the short list for others around the world to vote. Our students are thrilled at the honor.

Digital Citizenship: An important aspect of Google Apps, blogging, and searching online is to follow our class and school guidelines. Our students collaborate this week with a high school health class in Illinois whose task is to teach younger students how to be safe online and to prevent cyberbullying. Our sixth grade students will be designing and teaching safe strategies to our grade five students in a service project that helps the sixth grade review the strategies while teaching them to grade five students.
