Technology Curriculum Objectives:
The goal of the technology curriculum at St. Christopher's school is to reinforce classroom learning. There is a close alignment between classroom subjects and the lessons learned in the computer room. In third grade, students learn about online safety & research, word processing techniques, create presentations, etc. Towards the end of the third grade, children begin keyboarding practice.
In addition, third graders have the opportunity to practice critical thinking skills and to program a robot.
Students receive a grade for computer class on their report cards.
They will be finishing their Olympics project. They also choose an object from one of their subjects (Math, Science, etc.), and picked a 3D image to print representing that object. The objects will be on display in the lobby and in the computer lab once they have printed.
