Computer Science has made rapid advances and is evolving constantly.
EZ Vidya, an organization committed to enhancing the computer literacy levels across the country, specifically designs our computer curriculum for classes 4 and 5. Three computer labs with theory rooms incorporating latest technology are provided for the use of senior students. The internet is a repository of information for easy reference and this is used extensively by teachers and students to keep abreast of latest developments. Students work regularly on technology to present academic projects.
The computer curriculum for class 6 and 7 was designed in house. The curriculum includes learning software tools, cyber safety, thinking- out –of- the -box activities, team activities. The cover page of the computer project manual is designed by students.
Fresh ideas are incorporated into the EZ Vidya curriculum framework to enthuse students and thus lay a firm foundation for learning advanced concepts.
- The curriculum integrates various popular software packages like MS PowerPoint, LOGO, Micro worlds, Ulead Gif Animator, Q BASIC with appropriate themes. This ensures familiarity with both programming theories as well as graphic designing effects.
- High school curriculum that has been developed in house is designed to make the student more proficient in technology that can be applied to academics. Software like Corel Draw which is useful for creating brochures and other professional artwork, HTML, instrumental in web page designing, is taught in Class 8.
- Learning Visual Basic enforces programming literacy while learning Photoshop triggers visual thinking in students of Class 9.
- Flash, which aids in creating superior animation along with advanced HTML concepts, is offered to students in Class 10.
The computer curriculum is systematic and is instrumental in honing thinking and organizational skills in students. There is a gradual assimilation and application of concepts learnt in lower classes as students move to higher classes. Every class has one module encompassing computer programming and this evidently builds the students’ logical and thinking skills as they graduate to classes 11 & 12.
