This class will teach students basic skills in computers, including things like: Keyboard Shortcuts (Ctrl/Cmd-C / Cntrl/Cmd-V for copy/paste, etc.), how to set up file structures on your computer so you can quickly/easily store and find files, how to unzip files, how to work online safely (online safety/security), proper password usages and safety, and lots more.
By the end of the 2 sessions students will know how to do basic computer skills AND will have handy 'cheat-sheet' documents that will help them remember the skills they learn when they need them in class.
This class is a prerequisite for any 'tech' classes taught by Mr. Paschen (and some of the business classes), but it will prove beneficial for any class where students will be using a computer.
