“With PowerPoint, our fourth-grade students are doing electronic presentations, creating and deleting slides,” Jobe explained, “and they’re resizing columns and changing formats with spreadsheet programs.”

Sixth, seventh and eighth graders are exploring their computers’ possibilities – and applying them to hypothetical situations. Junior-high computer/language arts teacher Joy Timperley began the year by honing her students’ keyboarding skills. Now, they’re working on word processing, spreadsheets, Excel and PowerPoint.

“Next semester, Timperley has more projects in store for her kids. They may be doing a PowerPoint music video.”
