John J. Doran Community School

Computer Savvy! 

Students in grade 4 have been studying Weather in Science.  During Mrs Assad's Technology class they researched weather vocabulary using the Enchanted Learning Dictionary. After research was complete, students used Google Docs to design a Weather vocabulary poster, adding text boxes with definitions and adding matching images. 

Grade 8 students are discussing the Pros and Cons of Social Media using the Tweens Unit. Students chose a Social Media topic and researched either a Pro or a Con about this topic. Students worked with partners to find research information and to design a Google Slide presentation. Students added text, images and videos to their presentations. Students also collected links for a Bibliography of research and image links.
