First Good Shepherd recognizes the importance of computer technology and has made it a priority for all students. Students grade K-6 visit the computer lab each week for special computer instruction. We are blessed to have iMacs for each child in the class. We are also excited to have iPads for students use in K-6. We work hard to help train our children with the tools to compete today and in the future. Our students will be engaged in learning and will learn the following skills:

  • Word Processing
  • Spreadsheets
  • Graphics
  • multimedia
  • Desktop Publishing
  • Keyboarding
  • Basic Hardware Skills
  • Internet

Your child will be learning skills they will use throughout their lifetime like:

  • Practicing Internet safety and etiquette
  • Applying computer knowledge to real-life situations
  • Performing effective research and synthesis using the web
  • Becoming conversant in the ‘computer vocabulary’
  • Developing skills in navigating the menu and toolbars of various software applications
