Digital Technologies

“Never before in human history have we had so much information to process. A weekday edition of The New York Times now carries more information than the average person in the 17th century would digest in a lifetime. One thousand books are published every day. The total of all printed information doubles every five years. More information has been generated in the last three decades than in all the previous 5000 put together. We are in the midst of an information explosion.” Wilson da Silva


Students develop an understanding that our ability to use and create technology is a reflection of God as a creator within us. Our stewardship in how we use technology ethically and responsibly brings glory to God. Students are trained in navigating the user interface of a computer, port interfaces, and maintaining and saving data in the Cloud is beginning to be developed at an advanced level. Students learn email etiquette and security at an advanced level. They continue to practice skills of speed and efficiency in touch-typing. Students create movie trailers with iMovie, expanding on their programming and coding knowledge with Swift Playgrounds and Lego Mindstorms Robotics.
