Hello, my name is Mrs. Membrila. I am the Computer Lab Manager at Dyess Elementary. This is my eleventh year teaching computer at Dyess and I love it... I want to get the students as excited about technology as I am!
I teach K-5 and Special Ed. students. K-5th Grade all come to the Computer Lab once a week for 45 minutes and Special Ed. come once a week for 30 minutes. We have Windows 7, and use Microsoft Office, Tux Paint, and Kidspiration, to produce great projects. The students utilize the internet for researching subjects they are working on or even for educational games to reinforce their knowledge of a particular area of their curriculum.
The students also have access to a color laser printer and a Promethean Activboard (an interactive "touchable" whiteboard) - a great learning tool for our students. We also have several iPads that students are able to use to learn, reinforce, or test themselves on any curriculum unit they are studying.
Students love coming to Computer Lab!
I look forward to another great year of learning...
