Computer classes at Saint Luke School are offered from kindergarten through eighth grade and are designed to increase student confidence, skills, and creativity by fostering mastery of basics, student exploration, and learning culminating in the production of a series of upper school projects and collaborations. Technically, we focus on the key areas of file management, keyboarding, application usage, data analysis, and equipment usage, as well as safe and appropriate internet surfing. Creatively, we focus on synthesizing, gathering, and organizing digital assets such as images, sounds, video and data into our projects for use in computer lab projects and for class assignments. Students use a wide range of applications including Word, Excel, and PowerPoint as well as the Adobe Creative Suite which includes Flash, Fireworks and Dreamweaver, and Photoshop. In addition, students work with robotics to create programs to overcome a series of increasingly complex challenges.
