Technology Curriculm Objectives:
The technology curriculum for grades K, 1, and 2 loosely follows the overall kindergarten, first, and second grade curriculum. Computer lessons are prepared to reinforce lessons taught in language arts, science, mathematics, etc., This close integration between the classroom lessons and technology helps the children learn to use the computer as an additional tool for learning.
In addition, the second graders are exposed to coding concepts through the use of a programmable robot and iPad apps.
Students do not receive a grade in computer class until third grade.
