Welcome to the website for Ms. Boyle’s Computer Applications in Business class. This is a semester-long course that assists students in making informed decisions regarding their future academic and occupational goals in the Business Management and Administration career cluster. Our content includes instruction in keyboarding, computer hardware, internet and research skills, word processing, electronic presentation, and spreadsheet software, and skills for business applications. Instruction and activities take place in our computer lab, where each student has access to a desktop computer with the Microsoft Office 2016 Suite. Using hands-on activities, your student will learn the skills necessary to effectively and productively use the software, hardware, and technology necessary for everyday success in the modern world.
All research and classwork is completed in class unless your child is absent for an extended period of time. If you are interested in seeing what your child is doing in our lab, updates are posted weekly under Recent Posts. If you would like to support your child in this class, please encourage them to practice digital citizenship, and the correct habits of keyboarding and typing at home. Also, please feel free to e-mail me with any questions, comments, or concerns you may have. E-mail is always the easiest and quickest way to get a hold of me. I’m grateful and appreciative for the opportunity to teach your child, and I look forward to a semester full of inquiry, discovery, and virtual adventure.
Ms. Kelsey Boyle
