Welcome to 5th grade Technology! In this 9-week course, students will be introduced to their G-Suite* account provided by HISD. The primary goal of this class will be to learn how to use the primary programs in G-Suite - Gmail, Docs, Drawing, and Slides. Other topics will include digital citizenship, keyboarding, and a few great educational applications available on the web.
HISD encourages parents to monitor their student's G-Suite account frequently. A letter was sent home with your child's username and password so you may log in as your child and view his/her activities and progress. If you did not receive this information, please ask your child for the information. Students use this login information daily, so he/she should be able to provide this to you. However, if you have any problems with the login, please contact me and I will be happy to help.

The link below will take you to a Google Doc containing hyperlinks to many great educational websites and is organized by subject area. In addition, you will find a section with sites offered to HIS students through the school library and the district at the end of the document.
This is a fluid document so I am constantly adding and removing items. If you run across a link that does not work or find any issues with a site, please let me know. If you have a suggestion for a site that you think would be a good addition, please send me an email with the name of the site, and the link. I'm always on the lookout for new sites!
