“Any sufficiently advanced technology is equivalent to magic.” (A.C. Clarke)
Technology is the fastest-moving subject taught today. What was valid just ten years ago probably isn’t today. Recognizing changing trends such as the global move to social networking, and tailoring education to include its risks and benefits, is essential to today’s youth. "Blended learning"—which combines streaming video and interactive lessons with traditional methods—is now an essential educational method in classrooms for delivering content, particularly when combined with classroom projectors.
With Wi-Fi access throughout the school and computers in all classrooms, there is constant Internet access for all students, and increasing technology-related eighth-period activities.
With technology classes for all beginning at just 5 years old, children are given the building blocks for technology literacy, particularly through playful activities including educational games, which compound and increase knowledge in other subjects. These include mathematics, reading and writing. By the time children are slightly older, activities are used to stimulate critical thinking and logic. This leads to learning how to master the usage of software packages such as Microsoft Office, and programs such as Google Sketchup.
Older students learn through deeper activities, including programming, which is increasingly relevant in the ‘App’ driven world.
