Today’s child is more engaged with technology than ever before. Children intuitively and quickly learn to navigate electronic devices to surf the Internet, draw on a tablet, and create highly imaginative and complex structures in videogames, all with very little guidance.
The objective of the RHMS Computer Studies Program is to have students become digital creators, not merely digital consumers. Our curriculum bridges the gap between students’ technological experiences and their understanding of how technology is made, and its functional use and purpose in the future.
Computer Studies is offered to Elementary students in five different streams: Foundations (Digital Citizenship), Website Design, Photography and Graphic Design, Video and Animation, and Computer Programming. Using a highly collaborative and inquiry-based approach, students are expected to seek out solutions, and work together to solve problems, answer questions, and create technology.
