Questions If you have any questions, please raise your hand. Dont call out or get out of your seat. Most work in the lab is individual work and does not require talking. Concentrate on your own work. If someone needs help, let the teacher or lab manager help them unless told otherwise. If your computer freezes or gives an error message, please dont try to fix it. Your teacher may have you move to another computer if the lab manager is not immediately available. If Im not in the lab and there are severe problems, ask the office to locate the lab manager.
Independent Student Use Students may occasionally be sent to the lab to work on their own. A STAFF MEMBER MUST BE PRESENT AND WILLING TO SUPERVISE THESE STUDENTS. Students may not be in the lab unless a staff member is present. If the lab is being used by a class and there are available computers, students may use them. There is to be no talking out of respect for the students in the class. Students working independently must leave the lab if the supervising staff member leaves the lab.

I will use the computer as a learning tool. 4. I will work cooperatively with my partner. 5. I will work only from the websites given to me by my teacher.
Logging On To use CCC, the Internet, and other programs in the lab, use the lab log-on of CAICCE. 3 rd -6 th grade may use their own log-ins if work needs to be saved. Use the U: THAWSPACE drive to save files temporarily. Usernames are the students first initial and last name. Common names may include a number at the end. Passwords are student lunch numbers.
Printing Students may only print when required by their teacher. Permission must be given prior to printing. Make all corrections and check the Print Preview BEFORE printing. Do not print web pages. Copy and paste information to a Word document to print, if needed.
