Rivendell Technology

Now Presenting…

Older Kids have worked in Google Docs, Google Drawings, and Pixlr.com. They’ve learned interface conventions–where to look for certain things, in menu and tool bars, what various icons and symbols mean. Now they are working on presentations in Google Slides, and a lot of it looks very familiar!

Middle Kids have been exploring more in Pixlr, learning how to add text, shapes and more. We found you could even use it to make a campaign poster (you know, for the next Rivendell mascot election).

Younger Kids learned about browser tabs, the arrow keys and the space bar. The more ways you have to get around on the computer, the better. Games that use arrow keys and space bar are very common, and there are a number of them on one of their favorite sites, Wild Kratts.
