Using Excel in the Classroom

Instructor: Laura Gray

Laura has taught at the secondary and tertiary levels for 20+ years and has a Ph.D. in Instructional Design for Online Learning.

This lesson discusses several advantages to using Microsoft Excel in both the elementary and secondary classrooms. It will also offer several lesson ideas for using the software.

A Program for All Ages

More technology? Noooo! Have you ever uttered these words? If you haven't uttered them, have you at least thought them? Don't think you're alone. It's not uncommon for teachers to balk at--or even dread--the idea of having to master one more piece of classroom technology just to keep up with the times. Actually, Excel is a pretty easy program to learn to use, and even if you aren't a master, you can do some really neat things with it in the classroom. Whether you teach fourth graders or high school seniors, Excel can be a handy and fun tool to implement.
