Our Computer Magnet has evolved into a discipline encompassing computer software operation, networking and computer graphics. Each grade creates the foundation for the logical progression of skills for the individual student. The program’s philosophy is to support traditional learning methods using the many tools utilizing the newest technology. Students in the sixth grade learn the basic operation of a computer system. Students in the seventh grade focus on the Internet, networking, business skills, spreadsheets and databases. Eighth grade students are encouraged to utilize the computer as a tool for enhancing learning in other areas. The ultimate goal is to provide each student access to all the technological resources currently available.
