This course meets every other day for a semester and gives students a basis for using the Microsoft Office programs (Word, Excel, PowerPoint, and Publisher) and the Internet for research. Students complete activities that teach lessons on basic functions of the Office programs with interesting and helpful applications of the programs. Students also learn to discern whether information on a website can be trusted as a reliable source for research. We view technology as another tool as we strive to impact the world for Christ. We also recognize and emphasize the responsible use of all technology.
Two fully equipped PC computer labs are available to teachers and students for work in and out of class.
