As our students develop computational skills through concrete problem-solving activities, they proceed to more abstract thinking. In cooperative activities, they create, solve, and share their own word problems and become familiar with math vocabulary. Math games and manipulatives help students develop their math brain and become confident mathematicians.
The core operating dynamic of the Lower School technology curriculum is about empowering students through the use of technology. In service to this goal, and commitment to our developmental approach, our students are first and continuously taught digital citizenship while encouraged to become independent 21st century learners. Through recognizing, expanding, and applying their own knowledge in terms of technology skills and project topics, each student has the experience of being a more active participant in his or her own learning.
