The computer science curriculum is diverse and strong. Students start their computer science lessons while in Montessori, where they receive an introduction to programming using Micro Worlds (Logo) that encourages them to be analytical, critical, and creative. Students design, build, and animate ideas using the Logo language. Through drawing programs and didactic games they become acquainted with mouse and keyboard, in the process also favoring their fine motor skills.
From their early years, students learn to place their hands correctly, the appropriate use of the keyboard, and improve their skills with a typing tutorial: by the end of elementary they can type confidently, swiftly, and efficiently.
Students progress into proper use of the essential Office applications including word processing, spreadsheet usage, and multimedia presentations.
They apply these skills in the interdisciplinary academic subjects projects, complementing them with music, videos, animations, graphics, pictures, and tables. They also learn to enrich their learning creating concept maps with the Cmap tools program.
Technology is integrated into the classroom with an up-to-date computer science curriculum and appropriate resources. Teachers and students have access to multiple mobile devices like iPads and Kindles with support from specialists to enhance the learning experience.
