We have created a project-based curriculum that will push students to become creative, free thinkers who can use 21st century technology tools to get information and communicate. This course will cover three main units, including: internet safety, classic programs, and some of the most current online technology tools available.

All assignments will be submitted through Schoology. Our onsite and online courses will have hard deadlines for each of the projects to ensure that students are making adequate progress.  All summer classes are self-paced, and students can submit assignments as soon as they have them completed. Teachers will grade assignments as quickly as possible and provide a grade/feedback. Late assignments will not be accepted. Students will need to keep track of their grades and read the teacher feedback provided to correct any missing parts in order to receive full credit for the course.


Onsite Computer Literacy (Self-Paced)

Our onsite course requires that students attend class each day at Wellborn Middle School and stay for the entire session. Students will work in a computer lab but may also continue working on course assignments at home. Students will have access to a teacher during school hours. Students will complete assignments and submit them online through Schoology. Students with 3 unexcused absences will be dropped from the course.  This option is recommended for students who may not have access to technology or reliable internet access at home, or students who need a more structured environment to keep them on track.

All assignments and deadlines will be posted on the first day of class, and students must complete each assignment by the due date. Office hours will be offered for students to come in and work with an instructor, but students will need to make sure they respond to instructor feedback on Schoology. This course is designed for highly motivated students who have reliable internet access, Microsoft Office 2017 (Word, Excel, PowerPoint, Access), Google Suite for Education access (using their CSISD account), and a device (computer or laptop) to use to complete the course.  Please note, if using a Mac computer, Microsoft Office 2017 software is still needed.  All students will be able to use Microsoft Office 365, which is available to all 5th-12th grade students in CSISD.
