The Technology Department strives to provide each student with both the technology and problem-solving skills required to succeed in today’s information age. Chamlian’s technology program embraces and supports 21st century teaching and learning by integrating computing into the core curriculum.
With a fully-equipped computer lab and STEAM lab, our students receive weekly computer literacy and problem-solving skills through our STEAM program.
K-2nd Grade Classes:
Our Kindergarten-2nd grade students concentrate on acquiring beginning technology skills with a strong focus on developing typing skills, digital citizenship, and an introduction to our google apps platform.
3rd-8th Grade Classes:
Our 3rd-8th grade students will combine these technology skills to shift to a more collaborative learning approach through our interactive STEAM program. This class involves problem and project-based learning through the integration of Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts and Math (STEAM) education. These steam lessons are focused on real-life issues and will be guided by the Design Thinking learning framework. Design Thinking is a collaborative approach to problem solving and a step-by-step process for creating solutions. This program is designed to give students the chance to apply their technology skills and encourage students to think critically, solve problems and develop team building skills through a relevant learning environment.
