Our computer classes at Western will provide an extensive exposure to Microsoft Office 2007 software. These classes (6th, 7th, and 8th) will be project driven and will use this technology to create several multimedia projects that allow for a "rich and dynamic" presentation of information. Students will use (Word, Access, Excel, Publisher, and PowerPoint) and the Internet to complete these projects. Students also have the opportunity to explore different careers through the Career Cruising website: www.careercruising.com
Equipment used will also include an Astra Scanner, a Nikon Coolpix L3 digital camera, a flash drive and an HP Office jet G85xi color printer.
