I have been working in the Elementary Computer Lab for 5 years. I have lived in Loyal for 20 years and have a son in college and a daughter who is a senior at LHS.
In computer lab students learn the Microsoft Programs how to navigate the internet, gain mouse and touchpad skills, discuss internet safety, take virtual fieldtrips, and do keyboarding. Keyboarding/Typing skills start in the second grade and continue through MS/JH. The Microsoft Programs that we focus on are Word, Outlook, OneDrive, Power Point, Excel, and Publisher. By the time students reach 5th grade they have a good understanding of how each of these programs work.
