Harmless Online [dot] net

The technology class that I am teaching is going to be run like a corporation. The computer lab will be my office and the students will be my employees.

Here is a copy of the welcome letter that I sent home for their parents to sign.

I went all out and got my own domain name in order to use Google Apps. It cost me a whopping $10 for a year to get the domain name, but the Google interface is free. I have given each of my students their own personal e-mail, and once we get through the first semester, which will only be keyboarding, we might tackle some projects. Besides word and excel, I would like to get them to make a class webpage, and possibly a weekly newsletter.

Although right now I think I am having more fun than they are.
