The purpose of the PS
49 Technology Club, also known as the Mouse Squad, is to help students grow in
their abilities to utilize technology at PS 49 and for those students to aid in
technology issues within their classes.
The Technology Club of PS 49 will meet on Fridays from
2:20-3:00 PM in Room 218 with Mr. Gage as the advisor. Students will be engaged in learning how
various programs operate, e.g. Word, PowerPoint, Pixie, as well as using those
programs to create projects and disseminate their learning to others. The students will also learn how to deal with
various hardware issues, e.g. Smartboards, so they may aid in classroom issues
that may arise.
Participation in the Mouse Squad should aid students in
literacy, mathematics, analytic thinking skills as well as moving from school
