Technology- Mrs Koziol

Hello My Name Is...

Mrs. Koziol

Welcome to Highland's Technology Page! In the Fall of 2012, Highland's Computer Lab received a complete face-lift. We got rid of all our old Mac computers and replaced them with new Dell PCs. Our lab has 28 new Dells and an amazing Smartboard. We also have 12 Elmos & projectors for classroom use.

I see all of our 22 classrooms each week for a 40 minute
block ofinstruction and application. Students work independently on assignmentsand projects as well as collaboratively. Programs the students willbecome familiar with include Microsoft Word, Excel, Power Point, Kidspiration, TuxPaint, Tux Type & Tux Math, as well as many other web basedprograms.

Lessons caninclude internet safety, getting familiar with Word and all it has to offer, collecting data & creating graphs in Excel, publishing their works from ELA and practicing keyboardingskills. The older students in grades 3- 5 will create Power Point presentationsand learn great research skills.

Highland is lucky enough to have a second computer lab in the Library now! This is used primarily for Imagine Learning, but we also use it for Lexia and ST Math. Some of the classroom teacher's take their classes there for those programs with help from Mrs.McKenna.
