The computer lab curriculum familiarizes the students with the operation of computers both in a lab setting and within the classrooms. Students learn basic operations of the hardware, including parts of the computer, keyboard operation and function, and use of standard and special keys. They also learn essential technological terms and keyboard skills. Instructional software is used to teach computer literacy, word processing, and reading and math enrichment. The program's focus is to teach students how to solve problems and think critically through applying their skills in technology. Its long-term objective is to emphasize the role and impact of computer technology in today's world, and educate students on the capabilities and applications of technology.
