Welcome to the Computer Lab
My name is Ms. Schultz and I am looking forward to embarking on this adventure with you and your child in the vast exciting world of cyberspace. If your kids are awake, they’re probably online according to a 2009 study from the Kaiser Family Foundation. The average young American now spends practically every waking minute — except for the time in school — using a smart phone, computer, television or other electronic device.
I encourage you to learn along with your child by asking them about their school day. Always keep the lines of communication open by having them show you what they have done in class.
Here are some sites to help you guide your child in the vast maze of cyberspace. For more specific websites or information please refer to their individual grade level to the left of this.
Net Smartz Kids (ages 7-10) Games and safety tips for elementary students.
Net Smartz (ages 11-13) Games and activites for "tweens".
