Young children have much to gain from the use of technology. In preschool, they expand their ability to acquire information and solve problems. Regular access and exposure to computers and technology can enhance learning. Children use engaging, age-appropriate, and challenging software, and technology to extend their knowledge and to enrich their learning to curriculum content and concepts. These technologies serve as important learning tools and are integrated throughout the instructional program.
In the new CHIPS Lab, students do not use the Internet. Children learn the basic functions of the computer and technology. They develop techniques for handling and controlling various input devices, and become increasingly confident and independent users of age-appropriate software programs. Software titles include:
A to Zap!
Bailey's Book House
JumpStart Advanced Preschool
Jumpstart Numbers and Counting
Millies Math House
