Braemar House School has worked hard to deliver programming that stands at the forefront of curriculum design in Information Technology. Guided by the standards set for students by The International Society for Technology in Education (ISTE), Braemar’s unique Digital Literacy curriculum sets out to develop skills in research and information fluency.
We have taken the Ontario Ministry of Education Curriculum for Science and Technology to the next step, with diverse and sophisticated educational software, specialized robotics programming, cameras, lighting and sound systems for dramatic production, integrated computer centres and interactive white boards in each classroom, and a cutting edge one-to-one laptop program specifically designed to prepare Grade 7 and 8 students to be 21st Century Learners. Students in Grade 6 use Google Chromebooks as an introduction to the one-to-one laptop program.
All classes from Grade 1-8 work through a series of applications as they learn the fundamentals to computer coding using a variety of programs/platforms.
Grades 1 & 2 1 term program
Grade 3 2 term program
Grades 4-8 3 term program
The First Lego League runs as a varsity club, but is also integrated into the coding programming in Grades 6-8
