Welcome to Computer Education

Mrs. A. Severino

Technology Teacher

Robert Fulton School

 
Virtual Learning Starting March 30, 2020

Hello Students!


I hope everyone is doing well and adjusting to our new format of learning. I understand that what we are doing might seem strange and unusual, but if we all work together, ask questions along the way, and are ready and willing to try our new way of teaching and learning-we will get through this and be fine. 


As you are all aware, during the regular school year, we meet once a week for Computer Class.  I am going to try to adapt my lessons so that you will have a technology lesson once a week. These lessons will be posted in Google Classroom, as well as on my webpage. Please try to complete the technology lesson each week when you have free time from your other classes. If the assignment in Google Classroom is to answer a question, or if there is an assignment in which you need to attach a Google Doc or Slide Show, the preferable method to complete the assignment would be in Google Classroom.  If you are unable to complete the work in Google Classroom, you can complete the work on a separate sheet of paper, and save it in a folder until we are back together again.

 


I can always be reached by email  aseverino@northbergen.k12.nj.us  or by leaving me a private comment on any of your assignments in Google Classroom. I will do my best to answer your questions.  If anyone wants to just reach out and say hello as well, please do! I look forward to hearing from you.


All my best,


~Mrs. Severino
