Grade 3 moves on ahead from Microsoft Word to being able to use their imagination and creativity to make presentations on Google Slides/Microsoft PowerPoint including graphics and slide designs. Presentation skills help students create inventive and innovative ideas to illustrate their talk. The use of presentations makes talking interesting and this can help develop students’ confidence. When creating slides, students are encouraged to critically evaluate the visuals used, the message they want to convey through the visuals, and the efficient use of text with an emphasis on brevity and preciseness. Students are usually given 15 minutes to present a specific topic in the classroom. The more they present, the more they learn hence, improving their confidence.
Access to the internet and the ability to use it at their disposal also gets to a point when students can visit various websites and download applications and software at any point in time. Digital Safety too is equally important when it comes to using the internet. To stay safe online, we show students what could be the risks involved and learn how to avoid them by embracing appropriate internet behaviour.
