Product Description

Test your students Computer Skills! Christmas Computer Skills Challenge will challenge students to read and follow directions, use their prior computer knowledge, work together (if you pair students) to figure out how to perform computer tasks, and sharpen their Internet research skills all while the timer is ticking! 10 Challenges and there are no religious-type Christmas challenges.

Objectives:

Working with a partner, demonstrate computer skills, ability to complete computer skills tasks by helping each, using Help, or the Internet, follow written directions, and submitting the presentation within the time limit.

How to Use:

Students create one Google Slides or one PowerPoint presentation (sharing the file) and follow the specific directions for each Computer Challenge. Students will need to work together to complete the challenges and decide who is going to research which challenges. Students are allowed to use online help or the help feature in Google Slides or PowerPoint. This activity also challenges students reading, comprehension, and following directions.

Edit the Student Teams list to partner/group your students. Ideally pair one student who is stronger in computer skills with one that is not as strong (they will help each other). For younger grades, you could put students into groups of three students, but this activity is best used as partners or individually. For differentiation, there are two suggested time limits based on grade and computer skill level.

Technology Standards:

1.c Use technology to seek feedback that informs and improves their practice and to demonstrate their learning in a variety of ways.

3.d Students build knowledge by actively exploring real-world issues and problems, developing ideas and theories and pursuing answers and solutions.

6.b Create original works or responsibly repurpose or remix digital resources in new creations.

7 Students use digital tools to broaden their perspectives and enrich their learning by collaborating with others and working effectively in teams locally and globally.

7.c Contribute constructively to project teams, assuming various roles and responsibilities to work effectively toward a common goal.
