When I first came to my school two years ago, the computer lab was a sad state of affairs. It had faded, torn paper on the bulletin boards, thousands of random staples in the walls, and nothing helpful for the kids hanging on the walls.
Last year, I decided to spruce it up. We don’t have a computer teacher, so no one had taken ownership over the space. I started out by actually making a schedule for when teachers used the lab. Everyone had just used the same time year after year and no one knew when the lab was available. It was a little strange to me. I then removed all the weird staples in the walls, took down the gross paper, and put up bulletin borders. I also put up my PC Shortcuts.
The last thing I did was create a Home row bulletin board. We do Typing Web to help teach correct typing skills, but the kids do forget where to rest their fingers.
