Children's Comments

The kindergarten children were involved in activities that used a variety of hardware and software tools. One class of kindergarten children used Kid Pix to write and decorate original thank you notes for ACTTT staff. In the words of the teacher, "I know the kids were excited every Thursday just to see what fun project we were going to do!"

As the children completed their thank you notes they met the following National Education Technology Standards (NETS) for students: Creativity and Innovation; Communication and Collaboration; and Digital Citizenship. In addition they met language arts standards as defined by the National Council of Teachers of English that included: Communication Skills; Communication Strategies; Applying Knowledge; and Applying Language Skills.
