Where Technology Empowers Potential

Look around any restaurant or mall, pretty much anywhere, and it's easy to see adults are alwlays connected to their mobile devices. Think about the ways technology has changed in the world in the last five years. Now imagine how new technologies will transform the way your children live in 10, 15 or 20 years. Studies show that used wisely the latest technology can help create opportunities for more active and meaningful learning experiences.​
Your children won't be kids forever. When they decide on careers they will have to compete in an arena with other young adults who are tech savvy. Understanding how to use emerging technologies provides a key advantage in college and the workplace; this reality won't be changing anytime soon. The more comfortable your kids are with technology today, the better equipped they'll be to function in the world of tomorrow.

The world is changing and technology is driving much of that change. To be prepared, children need to have a working understanding of current technologies and have a high level of confidence in their abilities to master newer and more complex tools.

 
Technology Program
Here at "Empowering Success Now" we understand the importance of a good quality enriched​ Home-School education  and technoloy based program. That's why we provide a well balanced fun interactive environment ​were children can learn, interact, be creative and be themselves. Our Program involves educating our students with technology based curriculum, that add depth to your child's academic capabilites and long term possibilites. Through accessing computer technology your child will aquire a skill set that includes learning: 
Computer Coding
Keyboarding
Computer Programing
Game Design
Robotics
Web Design
Microsoft Applications
Digital Image Editing
Basics of Digital Graphics
In the process of learning to access and utilize these technologies your child will develop improved analytic and critical thinking skills.


"If we teach today's students
The way we taught yesterday's,
We rob them of tomorrow."

Beginning Keyboarding 
Ages 8-13
Times have changed. We  can no longer prepare students for the workplace of the future without providing them with skills necessary for using computers competently. One of those necessary skills is, of course, keyboarding. 

There is no getting around the problem of young children being placed in front of keyboards. There is no longer an ideal time for formal instruction because younger and younger children are imitating older siblings and parents by wanting to work with computers, and more software is being developed just for them.  Our program is designed just for them. The class will consist of students learning  proper keyboarding technique, typing accuratley with the proper fingers in the form of typing games and technique building software. 

Keyboarding is an important skill to obtain especially before reaching high school. As students progress in grade levels, the use of computers increases. Keyboarding builds confidence  and allows students to not get intimidated by reports or long assignments.

Beginning Keyboarding
Ages 14-18
​​Times have changed. Schools  can no longer prepare students for the workplace of the future without providing them with skills necessary for using computers competently. One of those necessary skills is, of course, keyboarding. 


High School   Students need to know how to use the keyboard when they enter college, to write  essays, reports, and papers, whether they’re submitted through the teacher’s home page or printed out to hand in for their grade. Over the course of one school year alone, students can save hours of typing time by learning to touch type. Without these essential keyboarding skills, many students risk falling behind in their classwork, something that will impact their performance throughout their school years and even affect their employability as adults.

The instructor of the course is  a college professor who teaches keyboarding at a local college. The class will be utilizing a college based program that incorportates two parts. The essentials of keyboarding and skill building excerises. The cirriculum will consist of 20 lessons that will cover word processing applications, all letters of the alphabet in addition to 10-key.

Robotics 
Ages 6-10
In this class students experiment and discover engineering basics via trail and error field testing. Rather than just snapping bricks together, students learn critical thinking skills and modify their robot design based on varying conditions.  The course exposes students to more complex engineering techniques such as pulleys, incline planes, and gear use. 

Students will learn how to create, build, program and control their individual robots using code. Students will need to purchase a individual robot kit.
