Hello Linda, The best way to get to the website is to type into the search "microsoft digital literacy" or "digital literach home" and it will come up. Then click on it and you should see the home page that describes the 3 levels of curriculum and in the left top it has a box that shows choices like getting started, instructor resources etc...you might want to check it out before you put a student on it. They have changed the set up some and it caught me off guard! Let me know what you think of it.

Hi, Mary Lou,
Where would we find the Microsoft digital literacy? It sounds
interesting, and free is always good. How would this fit with stackable
certificates? Thanks for any information.
Linda W.

What
a great resource Pam. In our program, we have a line on our registration form
that asks for the student's email address. We will communicate with the students
that way to save on stamps. We send flyers and reminders about breaks etc... We
have a few students who are not comfortable with the computer and are vocal
about it. I try and put them on microsoft digital literacy. It's free and there
are 3 levels to the curriculum: Basic, Standard and Advanced. Each level has
it's own assessment and if they pass, a certificate is generated and they can
print it off and put with their resume or other certificates they may have. I
have only used it a few times because most of my students are not vocal about
their lack of computer literacy. The only students who seem to mention it are
the ones who need proof for a specific educational program.

Since our classroom is in
the resource center, we set up our students with email accounts and encourage
them to take part in our computer classes held here.

It's hard to believe we are discussing the last of the 8
  Developing Writers workshops. Tawna raises important "hurdles" about
  technology in ABLE, namely equipment (hardware and software), time, and levels
  of student knowledge. Have any of you found, as Tawna did, that many students
  have never used email? The Southwest Resource center recently did a survey of
  technology use in our classrooms - it will be interesting to review the
  results and try to determine what can be done (from state level on down) to
  address the gaps.

Teacher Talk- April
  7

Integrating technology in the classroom can be a challenge. I know
  preparing our students for writing in the 21st century is important but the
  barriers can slow the progress of the integration. Time, money, and equipment
  present hurdles that have to be overcome. As teachers we will need to think
  outside the box and create writing lessons that will improve the academic
  realm of writing as well as learning technology. The computer presents the
  most obvious choice for lessons. I developed a lesson that looked at email
  etiquette and then had students respond to a teacher generated office memo
  email. Students had to access the email account, read the memo, and then reply
  to the memo using the etiquette rules we had discussed. For many, this was a
  first experience using email.

I liked the lesson and thought it was
  very worthwhile. The students were engaged in learning at each step.
  Nevertheless, I did discover that the lesson took much longer than I had
  anticipated and I will need to remember that as I begin to intertwine
  technology and writing in the class time that has been set up for writing
  instruction. Just another examination of the saying ? so much to do ?.so
  little time?.?
