Technology is quickly becoming more and more prevalent in everything we do. This is why Brother Rice believes that it is important that our students understand how the technology works, and how to best utilize the technology to be more efficient in class and in their future career. In order to accomplish this goal Brother Rice offers a Computer Applications class.
This class focuses on the Microsoft Office suite, Internet research, web tools (such as Glogster and Prezi) and how to use technology productively and efficiently. The main goal of the class is to help the students succeed not only in their other classes at Brother Rice, but also as they move on to college, and a career after college. We strive to teach the students just how powerful of a tool the computer is, and just how important computers, and technology as a whole will be in their schooling and future careers. This is a class taken by all students in one semester during the student’s tenth grade year.
