Young people today are coming of age at a time when technology is changing how they think, play and socialize. They embrace technology and consume it with an almost insatiable thirst. Some parents worry their children’s fascination for all things digital will make them slaves of technology. Fortunately, more and more parents and educators are recognizing the exciting opportunities that await children who learn how to become masters of the technology they enjoy.
Technology is what powers our digital world. It creates the software that operates our computers, laptops, tablets (chromebooks), smartphones and many other electronic devices. Students that learn the right technology make the leap from playful users of software to imaginative thinkers who are able to actually create it. It’s an educational pathway that helps them acquire skill sets necessary to become the architects and builders of tomorrow’s digital world.
