As digital natives, students today become technologically fluent at an early age.
The Corbett Prep technology program begins in PreK4 and builds upon itself through 8th grade. PreK4 students begin by learning the parts of the computer. Through the use of songs and kinesthetic symbols, teachers introduce software programs and application through practice and integration into their classroom studies. Students in all grades practice coding on age-appropriate apps, websites, and games that increase in difficulty as students master different levels. All ages learn about safety and how to be good digital citizens.
At Corbett Prep, students learn to work on multiple platforms – tablets, laptops, and desktops and switch between Mac and PCs – so they remain adaptable in an ever-changing world. While some of these students will pursue computer science careers, all benefit from a background in computer programming. Learning how to design programs on a computer helps students develop problem-solving techniques and reasoning skills and encourages them to think both logically and creatively.
