All Pathways


Keyboarding & Basic Word Processing - Students learning to type, the keyboard layout, ergonomic strategies and keyboarding proficiency. Students also learn to use word processing software for basic document creation, design, editing, collaboration, and problem solving. | Grade: 6
Intro to Office Productivity - Students learn topics and skills including computing basics, responsible usage, advanced word processing, spreadsheet basics, presentation basics, and multimedia design. | Grade: 6
Office Productivity Applications - Students deepen data literacy by learning advanced spreadsheets and databases. Students learn data collection and synthesis, data analysis, and data visualization. | Grade: 7
Computer Science Discoveries I - Students learn how computers input, output, store, and process information to help humans solve problems. Students will also learn how to create and share the content on their own web pages using HTML and CSS. | Grade: 6
Computer Science Discoveries II - Students will build on their coding experience as they program animations, interactive art, and games in Game Lab. The course starts off with simple shapes and builds up to more sophisticated sprite-based games, using the same programming concepts and the design process computer scientists use daily. | Grade: 7
Computer Science Discoveries III - Students will explore the importance of data in solving problems, the role of hardware platforms in computing, and how different sensors can provide more effective input and output than the traditional keyboard, mouse, and monitor. Using App Lab and Adafruit’s Circuit Playground, students will develop programs that utilize the same hardware inputs and outputs that are found in smart devices. | Grade: 8
