The intuitive, touchscreen capabilities of the iPad make it the perfect device for young students. The lower school iPad program allows our classroom teachers to introduce technology in a developmentally appropriate way. The devices facilitate differentiation and provide students with a powerful creative tool.
Students in grades JK–4 also participate in regular computer classes taught by a full-time lower school technology coordinator. Students begin learning the basics of coding in junior kindergarten and take on more sophisticated projects as their programming skills improve. The programming curriculum culminates in fourth grade, where students program their own LEGO robots.
