NO food, drinks, gum, or candy in the computer lab. If I give you candy as a reward, it is to be eaten OUTSIDE of this room. Keep your hands, feet, and objects to yourself. NO exceptions. RESPECT everyone and everything. Be kind to each other as well as the equipment and furniture. Websites and images must be school appropriate.

10 Individual Student Logins
Username = your student ID number. Password = you will create your own Be SURE it is something you can easily remember. Must be 8 characters long and have at least: 1 CAPITAL LETTER lowercase letters 1 number CANNOT have any part of your name. Need password ideas? Pick two of these: Favorite Color Favorite Food Favorite Sports Team Favorite Activity Favorite Subject Add your favorite number. Example: PurpleCat3 RedPizza4 MAKE SURE IT IS SOMETHING YOU CAN EASILY REMEMBER

11 Individual Student Logins
Grades 2 – 4 watch this video. Grades– 5- 8 watch this video. Now: Turn on your computer Enter your Student ID as the Username Enter Welcome2015 as the initial password It will prompt you to create a new password Enter your new password then enter it again to confirm the password. You must type it in EXACTLY the same way both times.

12 Don’t Forget… …to LOG OFF when class ends every time.
Be SURE you SAVED your work first! Click on the Start menu in the bottom left hand corner of your screen. It’s the circle icon with a colorful window in it. Click on the little arrow NEXT TO Shut Down DO NOT click on Shut Down Click on “Log Off”

13 Logging on After Resetting Your Password
After you have reset your password to have your own unique password, this is how the log in screen will look from now on…

14 Reminders TWO papers will go home today
Student Computer Login Card for Homework Technology Information Sheet Extra Credit Have your parents me at to earn you extra credit. They MUST put your Name and Homeroom number or teacher in the subject line. Homework Grades 3 – 8 Weekly Access it on Coach Class - Tuesday from 2:30 to 3:30. Priority is given to students who are working on assignments for me but if there are computers available you are welcome to work on assignments for other classes. Coach class is for WORKING on assignments and typing, not for playing games. DO NOT come to me on the morning an assignment is due, or while I am with a class, and ask to type an assignment or print something. If you need to work on an assignment or print something in the computer lab, you need to PLAN AHEAD to come to Coach Class. Grades Home – 20% Effort – 10% Everything Else = 70%
