Technology & Computer Science

Engaging courses in technology from K12 serve a wide range of students, from those encountering fundamental software tools for the first time to those seeking to dive into the rapidly changing world of 3-D design and animation.

All technology courses emphasize immediate application of new skills, and often use modularized projects as the basis for developing mastery of computer and technology fundamentals. Courses teach both the skills necessary for immediate educational application, but also for long-term vocational and professional viability. Plus, all the excitement of advances in game design, animation, and 3-D modeling are inherent in the advanced electives.

Courses map to the NETS (National Educational Technology Standards) where these apply, and embody, like all K12 courses, the goals and recommendations of the Partnership for 21st Century Skills.
