Technology

We are pleased to be able to offer  a great comprehensive technology program.

Basic Computer Instruction

Our students in Kindergarten through sixth grades all receive basic age-appropriate computer instruction.  This instruction helps to prepare them for success in

  • Keyboarding
  • Basic Microsoft Office (Word, Powerpoint, Excel)
  • Research techniques

Sixth Grade Yearbook

Our sixth-grade class gets extra instruction in desktop publishing, interviewing skills,  and video production as they produce their own yearbook and DVD.

Computer Clubs

We also offer extra instruction through after-school computer clubs.  In these clubs we cover many advanced topics based on the interests and skill levels of the students.  Some of the topics we’ve covered are

  • Digital photography
  • Graphics and digital image manipulation
  • Video creation and editing
  • Green screen (chroma key) video
  • Object oriented programming and game creation
  • 2D and 3D animation
  • 3D CAD design
  • Web design and production
  • Advanced Microsoft Office (Word, Powerpoint, Excel)

The computer clubs meet on Mondays and Fridays, from 3:15 to 4:15.

ACSI Technology Fair

We participate in the ACSI Technology Fair.  This gives an opportunity for us to compete against a number of different Christian schools in several areas of technology, including video creation, slideshow multimedia and more.  This year the Fair will be on April 28.

Our Lab

(For my fellow techies)

We have been blessed with an advanced computer lab with 15 workstations.  This lab lets us instruct small groups of students in a variety of technologies.  The workstations each have iI7 processors, 8 gigs of RAM, 1TB hard disks and more.  We also have a shared NAS disk and networked printers, along with professional video equipment.  For this year we have added a 3D printer for the students to be able to do 3d design and modeling.  The workstations are arranged so that I can see all the monitors at the same time, letting me watch and help everyone, as well as properly monitoring their use of online resources.  The personal attention lets us cover topics quickly and efficiently.
