The focus of the technology curriculum at Seneca Academy is to give students an understanding of how technology can be utilized to enhance their learning experiences. In the younger grades, our focus is on learning and practicing basic academic and social skills with video, audio, and digital print technology supporting the curriculum. Students begin their formal instruction in the use of computer technology in third grade. In fourth and fifth grades, students become proficient in keyboarding, word processing, creation of presentations, and data management. Computers are located in the classrooms in order to facilitate the use of technological tools. Students may use computers for word processing, information gathering, project development, and reinforcement of basic/advanced skills in academic subject areas. Technology skills throughout the grades are used to complete learning goals in the overall Seneca Academy curriculum.
