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. 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.

WHO NEEDS THESE TECHNOLOGY LESSONS?

These software lessons are perfect for technology teachers, classroom teachers, media specialists, STEM teachers, or homeschool parents who want their students to know how to use technology to create content. By mastering these software programs, students will feel comfortable doing anything you ask them to do with it.

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.

Keeping Your Classroom Devices Clean

Keeping Your Classroom Devices Clean


If you're trying to keep your immune system strong during cold and flu season, remember to clean your devices like your laptop and smart phone. This goes double for shared devices in the classroom or computer lab.
If you're trying to keep your immune system strong during cold and flu season, remember to clean your devices like your laptop and smart phone. This goes double for shared devices in the classroom or computer lab.

These tips and tricks will make the process go smoothly for you and your students.

*All links are Amazon Affiliate Links, which means I make money if you click through and purchase. This helps me keep this blog running and I appreciate your support! 

1. The worst offender is our smart phones because they rarely leave our hands. Imagine our freshly washed (for 20 seconds, with hot water and soap) hands and then we pick up the same germy phone again. Eww.
Take the time to remove the case and clean the whole phone. It is amazing what stuff can get under the phone case and stay there!

During cold and flu season, take the time to regularly clean your phone. Daily wipe downs with a screen-safe cloth will help.
2. Keyboards and the mouse/trackpad are top places for germs to be spread, especially on shared devices. 
We all know that kids are gross.
The best course of action is to have students wash their hands before even touching computers, but that isn't always possible. In that case, a squirt or spray of hand sanitizer is really useful.
If your computers are set up in rows, have a bottle at the entrance to the row so that students can get some on their way to their seats.
There are also tools we can use to keep the keyboards from collecting so many germs. I like to use compressed air or a tiny vacuum first to get most of the stuff out from between the keys. 
Once the keyboards are dusted, I use a 2-phase approach to sanitizing. I start with a UV Wand and then run some sticky goop over each keyboard to get them really clean. If you don't have the UV Wand, you can use an anti-bacterial spray as long as it doesn't make the letters come off. 
Use the same set of steps for the mouse or trackpad for each device. I usually take the time to turn them upside down to clean too, but a quick spray of Lysol every day gets me by in a pinch. 
Bonus points if you can get student helpers to take care of a few of the steps for you each day!

3. Remotes - ewww. Remotes are a germ breeding ground! Wipe down the remote with a disinfecting wipe at least once a day, especially if you have students pressing any buttons for you. 
4. Screens and Monitors have to be carefully cleaned, but it is worth it to stop the spread of germs. Clorox has a great product that disinfects without leaving streaks behind.
