Fifth Grade Technology Lessons

Students learn to work with various types of images, graphics, and video. Students research and create presentations.

5th Graders continue to use multimedia to work on activities and projects that integrate technology into classroom curriculum.

Students learn the basics of photo editing and graphics creation as well as learn to create and edit video.

Most desktop software used is free or open source.

Students will also use iPads to create a variety of projects and presentations.

Students will create iPad picture collages, Venn diagrams, puppet shows, slideshows, Keynote presentations, mind maps, videos, comics and more.

 

 

In my computer lab there is an additional requirement that each completed technology lesson be uploaded and presented visually on each student's personal website.

I currently use Weebly for Education free websites for my 5th grade students. It is easy to learn, has many themes, and allows students to customize the appearance to their liking.

I password protect all of my student's sites for privacy and safety.

Students may also be required to upload their completed projects to a learning management system such as Edmodo, Schoology or Google Classroom for assessment and grading.
