Ms. Genna

Computer Lab
Instructor: Ms. Genna   
Welcome to the Computer Lab!

The school's brand new computer lab was opened to students in July 1999.† All of the hardware and software for the lab was purchased through funds obtained from a technology grant.†At that time, the lab consisted of thirteen Pentium II stand-alone PCs, two ink†jet printers with an A-B switch box, a scanner,†along a variety of educational and commercial software.
Since then, the computer lab has undergone many changes.†Today the lab consists of a local area network of 10 Mac Minis, one color HP Officejet Pro printer, an interactive white board, and a variety of educational and commercial software.
High school level classes are taught by the schoolís business/computer teacher† and meet in the Computer Lab according to the high school students' individual class schedules.

Occasionally, middle and elementary level classes will meet in the Computer Lab for special collaborative projects facilitated/instructed by Ms. Genna along with middle/elementary level classroom teachers.

2016-2017 School Year Goals & Expectations
September 7, 2016

Dear Viewers,

My plan for this school year is to create learning experiences for my students based on the National Educational Technology Standards for Students (NETS-S) at
http://www.iste.org. I will also provide high school students with course content that that connects the Career Development and Occupational Studies Learning Standards (CDOS) and CTE Common Core as defined at http://www.p12.nysed.gov/cte/business/sections/standards.html

We will begin with understanding and applying the LFUFSD Acceptable Use Policy as detailed in our districtís technology plan. We will also introduce or review Internet safety precautions and procedures for all students.
  • Students in all grade levels assigned to Computer Skills class will be engaged in real-world tasks across the curriculum that shall assist in instilling wonder, while maintaining accountability.
  • All students assigned to classes in the Computer Lab will use the technology we have accessible to us to practice 21st Century skills that will prepare them for the workplace and everyday life. Microsoft Office applications like, Word, Excel, and PowerPoint will be utilized.
  • High school students will be provided with Career and Technical Education (CTE) opportunities in the areas of Business and Marketing Education as defined at http://www.p12.nysed.gov/cte/business/ . Some of the topics addressed may include but are not limited to: foundations of business, career planning, soft skills for success, keyboarding, word processing, desktop publishing, spreadsheets, multimedia, personal finance, business/consumer math, business communications, website development, and entrepreneurship. Project-based activity topics may vary and some students may qualify for an independent study project.
  • Students assigned to classes in the Computer Lab are subject to the LFUFSD school wide expectations as stated n the LF Technology AUP, Student Code of Conduct, and outlined in the GIANT Matrix.
    • Food and/or drinks are not permitted in the Computer Lab.
  • Attendance is pertinent as the majority of classwork consists of hands-on computer activities, class discussions, role-play, etc.
    • Students who miss classwork due to a legal absence will have the opportunity to make-up any missing/incomplete work.
  • Grades are determined as follows:
    • Behavior - 25% of grade

    • Effort - 25% of grade
Have a safe and productive school year!
